Development & the UN - Explore our new guide

Friday 1 June 2018

Topics: Resources

From the Development Decades, to the Millennium Development Goals and the current Sustainable Development Goals.  How has the concept of development changed over the years within the United Nations since 1946?  The Dag Hammarskjold Library has a new research guide on development to help you find out.

The guide UN Documentation : Development is presented in a timeline format, highlighting key documents including major conferences, reports and resolutions. It illustrates how the concept of development within the Organization has evolved with sections for each of the Development Decades, the Millennium Development Goals and the Sustainable Development Goals. International years and decades declared by the General Assembly are included to highlight the wide variety of topics that touch on development and some of the strategies the UN has used to raise global awareness of these issues. The guide will continue to be updated to reflect the ongoing work of the Organization on this vital topic.

This guide complements other UN documentation guides the Library has recently published on the UN System, Decolonization and the Trusteeship Council.
