Chapter Summary

The decision to establish in Nairobi a further main office of the United Nations, in addition to the headquarters in New York and the European offices in Geneva and Vienna, was made rather late, in the year 1996. The United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON) provides both UNEP and UN-HABITAT with administrative services, including information technology and conference services. The UNON is without doubt an indicator of the seriousness of the dialogue between North and South. It is highly desirable that the governments of the industrialized countries of the North stop their attempts to bring about the abolition of the only UN office in the Third World by using their budgetary powers. In supporting the further development of the UNON to becoming an essential conference centre, the developed states could prove that they appreciate the North-South dialogue and the role of the developing states in the UN.

Keywords: developing states; North-South dialogue; UN Office Nairobi (UNON); UN-HABITAT; UNEP
