Release of UN Handbook

New Zealand Government is proud to announce the release of another United Nations Handbook edition. This year we released its 50th edition, and New Zealand is honoured to have produced them since 1961 as a symbol of our longstanding commitment to the United Nations.

The United Nations Handbook is a guide to the United Nations system and how it works. The handbook summarises all United Nations organisations and provides essential information about their aims, structures, and membership.
This year we bring you the online version of the handbook, and also download available in different file extensions. Moreover, those who want to purchase a printed copy can order it on the website.
Below are links to more information on the handbook and its online version.
