UNFPA Geneva Office
United Nations reform demands greater interagency teamwork and coordination. The Geneva Office fosters this harmonization by representing UNFPA in consultative processes involving UN agencies in Geneva and elsewhere in Europe, as well as at meetings of national, regional and intergovernmental organizations. The office’s location in the International Environment House, which is home to several other UN agencies and partners, encourages close working relationships.
Situated in the ‘humanitarian capital of the world’, the Geneva Office is also able to extend UNFPA’s capacity to respond quickly to emergencies. Two staff members provide technical backup and assistance with information, advocacy and fundraising activities related to humanitarian emergencies.
