How do you access UN DESA’s publications? Do you find the data, analysis and policy advice presented in them useful? Do they help inform your area of work? The department has just launched an online survey, and we want to hear from you! By taking this brief survey, you will help us better understand your needs, thereby enabling us to deliver the highest standard of information.

Publications and databases are key platforms to disseminate the work of UN DESA. The department publishes an average of 13 major publications a year and maintains 6 major databases that reach a broad audience of policy makers, academics and key stakeholders. In this way, UN DESA publications and databases are a cornerstone of the department’s programme of work.

It is therefore important that the department undertakes a periodic review of its publications and databases to make sure that this investment is reaching its target audiences, meeting expectations and contributing to the global policy dialogue on economic, social and environmental issues.

We would like to invite you to participate in a brief survey to better understand your needs and provide you with the highest standard of information.

The aggregated results from this survey will be part of UN DESA's internal evaluation on the impact of its publications and databases, which will assist us in further enhancing the quality​ and distribution of a key part of our programmed deliverables. The survey will be online until 30 June 2020.

Thank you for your valuable support in completing this survey!
