With its comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters, the Yearbook of the United Nations stands as the most authoritative reference work on the activities and concerns of the Organization. Fully indexed, the Yearbook includes the texts of all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions and decisions, putting all of these in a narrative context of United Nations consideration, decision and action.




In 2013, the United Nations Children’s Fund (unicef) continued to work to protect the rights and improve the well-being of every child, everywhere, especially the most disadvantaged. Working with partners in more than 190 countries, unicef efforts to support the most vulnerable children and their families took place against the backdrop of a fragile global economy in which extreme poverty was heavily concentrated among the young. The Fund continued to focus on five main areas of work: young child survival and development; basic education and gender equality; hiv/aids and children; child protection from violence, exploitation and abuse; and policy advocacy and partnerships for children’s rights.
