UN Economic Commission for Europe

The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) is one of the five
regional commissions of the United Nations. It is the forum where the
countries of western, central and eastern Europe, central Asia and North
America – 56 countries in all – come together to forge the tools of their
economic cooperation. That cooperation concerns such areas as economic
cooperation and integration, energy, environment, human settlements,
population, statistics, timber, trade, and transport. 

The Commission offers a regional framework for the elaboration and
harmonization of conventions, norms and standards. The Commission's experts
provide technical assistance to the countries of Eastern Europe, the
Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) and of south-east Europe. This assistance
takes the form of advisory services, training seminars and workshops where
countries in transition can share their experiences and receive support from
other countries in the region.
