Yearbook of the United Nations, 2005. Part 5, Institutional, administrative and budgetary questions. Chapter 4, Institutional and administrative matters
In 2005, the United Nations addressed administrative and institutional matters in order to ensure the efficient functioning of the Organization. The General Assembly resumed its fifty-ninth session and opened its sixtieth session on 13 September. A High-level plenary meeting was convened from 14 to 16 September to commemorate the sixtieth anniversary of the founding of the Organization. The Assembly granted observer status to the Latin American Integration Association, the Common Fund for Commodities, the Hague Conference on Private International Law and the Ibero-American Conference. The Security Council held 235 formal meetings to deal with regional conflicts, peacekeeping operations and other issues related to the maintenance of international peace and security. The expansion of its membership was again considered by the Assembly. In addition to its organizational and substantive sessions, the Economic and Social Council held a special high-level meeting with the Bretton Woods institutions (the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund), the World Trade Organization and the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. The Committee on Conferences examined requests for changes to the 2005 calendar of conferences and meetings and sought ways of optimizing the use of conference-servicing resources. As part of its reform process, it began using e-Meets, the electronic meetings management system. The Secretary-General reported on progress in the implementation of the capital master plan for the refurbishment of the UN Headquarters complex in New York. The strategy for executing the project was re-examined and the Secretary-General recommended a phased approach to the renovations. The Secretary-General also reported on the establishment of the United Nations Department of Safety and Security.
