This unique publication, the fifty-eighth volume of the Yearbook of the United Nations, chronicles all the major activities undertaken in the organization in the year 2004. In an increasingly complex international environment, the United Nations addressed, during the year, the many peace and security challenges it faced, especially the threats posed by international terrorism, conflict situations and the potential proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The United Nations also sought solutions to such economics and social problems as poverty, hunger, unsafe drinking water, environmental degradation and endemic and infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, by working to implement the Millennium Development Goals.
