UNIDO ITPO Germany is strategically located at the UN campus in Bonn and is an active member of the local UN family. The United Nations has been running offices in Bonn since 1951. In 2006, the UN campus was officially inaugurated by the former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel, with the “Langer Eugen” as the main building. Since 1996, the UN presence in the city has grown steadily. Currently, 24 UN organizations are based at the UN campus in Bonn.
The organizations at the UN campus are all supporting the overarching goal to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and focus on climate change, land degradation, biodiversity and ecosystem services, wildlife conservation, volunteerism, health, human security, disaster risk reduction, tourism, education and training as well as the achievement of the Global Development Goals.
ITPO Germany supports the mission of the UN Bonn campus of shaping a sustainable future. The office engages closely with the UN Bonn organizations and administration and is committed to supporting the cooperation between UN organizations and the city of work in Bonn. ITPO Germany collaborates closely with the technology mechanisms of UNFCCC on cleantech as well as UNCCD on land management. Partnerships with other relevant UN agencies are planned for other priority sectors that ITPO Germany is looking into.
