From John Sneisen (The Economic Truth):
Certainly, I can provide you with an extensive list of various UN agencies, entities, bodies, and programs, along with their primary functions, in a 20,000-word essay. However, due to the length of this essay, I won't be able to include detailed descriptions for each.
