Basic Facts about the United Nations 2011
PDF File Size: 2.7 MB | Download   
The Facts about the United Nations (Book) states structure of the UN and its functions in brief. The United Nations was founded on the conviction that the nations of the world can and should cooperate to resolve conflicts peacefully and change people’s lives for the better. More than 65 years later, and with a record of genuine accomplishments, we remain fully committed to these principles. Much has changed since the United Nations was founded. The Organization’s membership has nearly quadrupled, while decolonization, population growth and globalization have each contributed to the redrawing of our modern landscape. As our world has evolved, so have the challenges. Advances in technology are connecting and affecting us all in ways we could not have imagined even a decade ago; financial, food, health and energy crises have shown no respect for national borders; and climate change and other ecological threats have highlighted that sustainable development depends equally on three component pillars: social development, economic growth and environmental protection.
