The United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) is the second largest UN office in the world, second only to the UN headquarters in New York, and functions as the representative office of the UN Secretary-General in Geneva. The organization has quite a long history in Switzerland - although the Swiss Confederation was only admitted as a full member on September 10, 2002 following a referendum.
One of the busiest conference centers in the world
The UN office in Geneva employs a staff of 1,600, functions as the European focal point for multilateral diplomacy and organizes more than 8,000 conferences and meetings every year. This makes Geneva and the UN, based at the Palais des Nations, one of the busiest conference centers in the world.
Geneva is home to many other UN-related organizations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). UN humanitarian programs are also based in Geneva, including the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.
International Telecom Union and UMB: facilitating the exchange of information
UNOG's IT infrastructure fulfils an important and unifying function as a part of its mission. Responsibility for communication lies with the International Telecom Union, a customer of UMB.
