UNITED NATIONS OFFICE IN GENEVA (UNOG)
"In the historic setting of the Palais des Nations, UN Geneva (UNOG) brings together individuals, organizations and nations to ensure a better future for all. As a diplomatic center, with near universal representation of states, Geneva is the ideal location for successful international cooperation. Around 8,000 meetings were held at the Palais des Nations last year, each in different ways touching the lives of people around the globe.
Driven by a commitment to maintain international peace and security, we actively work to advance disarmament, implement the Sustainable Development Goals, protect and promote human rights, encourage gender equality, eradicate poverty and provide fast, effective humanitarian relief in emergencies.
Through partnerships between governments, civil society, research, academia and other international actors, UN Geneva works hard to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by the year 2030. Nurturing mutual respect and understanding, cultural exchange, and discussion, UN Geneva protects and preserves the institutional memory and cultural heritage of the United Nations".
