UN Bonn Annual Preview for 2018
On 29 January 2018, UN Bonn organized a press-briefing for local media and civil society to provide them with an overview of the activities and priorities of Bonn-based UN organisations for 2018.
In his opening remarks, Prof. Jakob Rhyner, current Head of Agencies and Director of United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), provided an overview of the growing UN Campus in Bonn, and appreciated the city of Bonn as a pleasant work and living place.
Following brief statements by media spokespersons from each organisation, guests were provided an opportunity to ask questions and engage in further discussions. The event, which was attended by around 30 participants, also aimed at further building on and encouraging the good exchange of information and closer cooperation among UN agencies and local media in Bonn.
