The Yearbook of the United Nations, comprehensive and reliable, is the primary reference work on the United Nations. This fifty-fifth volume of the Yearbook details the many activities of the Organization and its organs, programmes and bodies in 2001. It provides an overview of the major challenges the Organization has addressed in a variety of areas, including peacekeeping and peacemaking; disarmament; human rights; refugees and displaced persons; international crime and corruption; natural resources and energy; and System-wide Special Initiative on Africa. This 1,500 pages volume is fully indexed and reproduces all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions issued during the year. It will be a valuable resource for diplomats, government officials, scholars, journalists and others with a serious interest in international and United Nations affairs.




In 2001, the United Nations continued its statistical work programme. In March, the 24-member Statistical Commission endorsed the proposed new approach developed by the Intersecretariat Working Group on National Accounts for a better and more comprehensive assessment of the implementation of the System of National Accounts, 1993; welcomed the publication of a handbook on the measurement of capital stocks and flows; and adopted the draft manual on statistics of international trade in services. The Commission reviewed the work of a number of established bodies and international organizations in various areas of economic, social and environment statistics and made specific recommendations and suggestions.
