World Economic Situation and Prospects

World Economic Situation and Prospects
http://www.un.org/esa/policy/publications/papers.htm

As the main development research division of the UN Secretariat, the Development Policy and Analysis Division produces an array of publications and documents that support the General Assembly and the Economic and Social Council in their assessment of current and long-term development issues and in their policy-setting agendas. In addition, the Division’s outputs are aimed at national policymakers, the research community and the general public, and thus contribute to enriching academic discussions of development challenges and providing policy recommendations. The Division’s main publications include two departmental flagships, the World Economic and Social Survey (WESS) and the World Economic Situation and Prospects (WESP), and thematic reports by the Committee for Development Policy. The official documents are parliamentary in nature, consisting of specific inputs mandated by and prepared for the General Assembly and the Economic and Social Council. The working papers and LINK meeting reports and papers are geared more towards the research community and the general public. This also applies to the background papers, which provide additional in-depth analysis on topics discussed in the main publications.
