Manual on statistics of international trade in services by United Nations( file )
11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,037 libraries worldwide
The Manual on Statistics of International Trade in Services is a joint publication of six agencies:- the UN, EC, IMF, OECD, UNCTAD, and WTO. It addresses a growing demand from governments, businesses and analysts for more relevant, detailed and internationally comparable statistics on services trade. Special emphasis is given to the statistical information needs of international trade negotiations and agreements. The Manual provides a coherent internationally-agreed conceptual framework within which countries can structure the statistics they compile and report on international services trade. It builds on and links to existing standards, in particular the fifth edition of the International Monetary Fund's Balance of Payments Manual and the 1993 System of National Accounts. It categorises the services that are traded internationally, and how they are traded in practice, taking into account the modes of supply of services

In 2002, at the World Summit on Sustainable Development, World Leaders agreed to substantially reduce the rate of biodiversity loss worldwide by 2010. However, the Johannesburg target has not been met. Today biodiversity is being lost more quickly than ever. The current rate of extinction is estimated to be up to 1,000 times higher than the natural background rate. If this trend does not change, it is expected that an area of 1.3 billion hectares worldwide - about 1.5 times the United States - will completely lose its original biodiversity levels by 2050. It is no exaggeration to say that our quality of life will suffer tremendously if we continue to lose biodiversity. We depend on biodiversity for everything from food, fuel and medicines, to air and water purifi cation and the pollination of wild plants and crops. But despite the great importance of biodiversity to human wellbeing, the far-reaching consequences of biodiversity loss are unknown to the general public and to policymakers. That is why the United Nations General Assembly declared 2010 the International Year of Biodiversity. This is a historic event in the life of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the international treaty devoted to the conservation and sustainable use of our biological resources, and the fair and equitable sharing of benefi ts arising from genetic resources. The goals the International Year are to raise awareness about the importance of biodiversity, to communicate the human costs of its ongoing loss, and to get people, and in particular youth and children, involved in efforts to conserve and sustainably use our natural heritage.The International Year was offi cially launched in Berlin in early January under the chairmanship of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and will culminate in September in a High-Level Segment of the 65th session of UN General Assembly on biodiversity with the participation of Heads of State and Government. The New York Biodiversity Summit will be followed in October by the Nagoya Biodiversity Summit. In Nagoya the 193 Parties to the Convention will adopt a new strategic plan for 2011-2020 which will include a 2050 biodiversity vision as well as a 2020 biodiversity target aimed at stopping biodiversity loss. This will be done with the participation of a broad range of stakeholders, including youth, local and indigenous authorities, parliamentarians, mayors, development cooperation agencies and the private sector. All of us must do our part and play an active role during the International Year of Biodiversity. With the future wellbeing of our children at stake, business as usual is no longer an option. I therefore welcome the focus on biodiversity in the 2010 Treaty Event. As the slogan of the International Year reminds us, "Biodiversity is life. Biodiversity is our life."
