About the product
The United Nations deals with the world's major problems. Through the stories told in this book, you will see how much the United Nations is a part of everyone's life and how much we rely on its programmes. The stories illustrate, accurately, the direct and vital connections existing between the world Organization and your activities. The book is organized in such a way that the stories appear under the relevant UN agency. For example the story on: `Children who work' is placed under the heading UNICEF - The United Nations Children's Fund; `Trading with the world' is under UNCTAD - The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and `Equal pay for women and men' is under the ILO - International Labour Organization. It also presents important facts on each of the UN agencies covered.
