For this reason the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe created a system of monitoring the development of information and communication technologies and knowledge intensive-economic activities. This analysis is contained in the country readiness assessment reports compiled by national experts, to provide detailed information on the countries potential, as well as a current picture of the approaches and solutions taking place with regards to developing a knowledge based economy.--Publisher's description

Export and import price index manual theory and practice by International Labour Office ( )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A joint production by six international organizations, this manual explores the conceptual and theoretical issues that national statistical offices should consider in the daily compilation of export and import price indices. Intended for use by both developed and developing countries, it replaces guidance from the United Nations that is now more than a quarter-century old and thus badly outdated. The chapters cover many topics; they elaborate on the different practices currently in use, propose alternatives whenever possible, and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each alternative. Given its comprehensive nature, the manual is expected to satisfy the needs of many users in addition to national statistical offices and international organizations, particularly businesses, policymakers, and researchers
Producer price index manual theory and practice by International Monetary Fund ( )
5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The producer price index (PPI) measures the rate at which the prices of producer goods and services are changing overtime. It is a key statistic for economic and business decision making and inflation monitoring. The Producer Price Index Manual: Theory and Practice provides clear, up-to-date guidance on the concepts, uses, methods, and economic theory of the PPI, including information on classifications, sources, compilation techniques, and analytical uses of the PPI. The Manual supersedes the previous international guidance on PPIs (available in the Manual on Producers' Price Indices for Industrial Goods, published by the United Nations Statistics Division in 1979). The Manual's conceptual framework derives from the System of National Accounts1993 and recent developments in index number theory. Preparation of the Manual was undertaken by the Intersecretariat Working Group on Price Statistics through a technical expert group chaired by the IMF and involving representatives from the ILO, the OECD, the UN Economic Commission for Europe, the World Bank, national statistical offices, and academic institutions
Guidebook on promoting good governance in public-private partnerships by United Nations ( )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 775 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"... continues the series of national assessments of innovation policies initiated by the pilot Innovation Performance Review of Belarus. These policy advisory exercises draw on the experience accumulated by the UNECE in the identification of good practices and policy lessons in the area of knowledge-based development, with particular reference to the problems of countries with economies in transition. This Review presents the outcomes of an advisory project undertaken at the request of the Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan. It aims to provide a set of recommendations and policy options to stimulate innovation activity in the country, enhance its innovation capacity and improve the overall efficiency of the national innovation system. Close collaboration with the national authorities and other experts from Kazakhstan throughout the project has helped in identifying issues of practical importance and in ensuring the relevance of the Review conclusions and recommendations to national circumstances. The Review will contribute to increase our knowledge of the impact of policies promoting innovative development and to the identification of good practices in this area that could be useful for other countries with economies in transition. The assessments and recommendations presented in the Review will also provide a solid basis for capacity-building activities that could be implemented to facilitate the implementation of the proposed recommendations."--Provided by publisher

Self-made cities in search of sustainable solutions for informal settlements in the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe region by S Tsenkova ( )
14 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Informal settlements are often characterized as "illegal" residential formations lacking basic infrastructure, security of tenure and adequate housing. This book describes how more than 50 million people in the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) region have come to live in informal settlements and examines the main characteristics of the phenomenon. It also provides policy recommendations based on case studies and initiatives implemented in the region, with varying degrees of success. It concludes that there is no "one-size-fits-all" solution, as informal settlements are the product of complex socio-political processes that differ significantly from country to country and from region to region."--Publisher's description
Dynamics of fertility and partnership in Europe insights and lessons from comparative research by Nazioni Unite ( )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This publication is a product of the Fertility and Family Survey (FFS) project, which was conducted between 1988 and 1999 by the Population Activities Unit (PAU) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), with financial support from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). The objectives of the project were: 1) to conduct comparable Fertility and Family Surveys in UNECE member countries; 2) to create and archive FFS Standard Recode Files (SRFs); 3) to prepare FFS Standard Country Reports (SCRs); 4) to carry out a program of cross-country comparative research. The FFS IWG organized an end-of-project conference; the FFS Flagship Conference became an occasion for many researchers to present their findings of comparative analyses based on FFS data, in particular those studying partnership and fertility behavior. Volume one presents selected contributions to the FFS Flagship Conference solicited by the Organising Committee of the Conference. The second volume presents contributions received in response to a call for papers issued by the Organising Committee
