Geneva: Publication of the 2021 UN Geneva Annual Report
The UN Office Geneva is pleased to share with you the 2021 UN Geneva Annual Report: Shaping renewed multilateralism.
Please find below a quote from the UNOG Director-General:
‘The world is facing many interrelated problems, including armed conflicts, humanitarian emergencies, economic shocks, climate change and a pandemic. Global challenges of this magnitude require global solutions. Multilateralism, however, is under fire, just when it is needed most. It is clear we need a new multilateralism that responds to today’s evolving needs.
To help shape this renewed multilateralism, in 2021 UN Geneva focused on becoming more modern, inclusive and innovative. The completion of important phases of the Strategic Heritage Plan provided many staff with a new working environment. Our embrace of technology enabled greater participation and engagement in multilateralism by our diverse stakeholders.
At the same time, UN Geneva adapted to the evolving epidemiological situation to ensure the continuity of multilateral diplomacy and the delivery of our mandates while supporting the safety and well-being of staff, delegates and all who visit our premises. In addition, we continued to put the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at the forefront of our work, developing new partnerships and further incorporating sustainability into our projects.
These activities and more are outlined in the Annual Report’.
The report is available in English and French on the UN Geneva website.
