Chapter Summary

Bonn became rather late a UN site compared to the others in Europe: Geneva (UN Office Geneva), Vienna (UN Office Vienna), Rome (seat of the FAO) and Paris (seat of the UNESCO). In 1996 the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) accepted the German offer to take its seat in Bonn. In the same year the United Nations Information Centre Bonn opened as one of the more than seventy branch offices of the UN Department of Public Information, providing information about UN activities to the public and organizing press conferences on current events related to the UN. In subsequent years slowly but steadily Bonn became the seat of a number of small UN units, subdivisions of larger UN organizations in the field of environmental protection, education, health and UN research.
