Sources of information

International public sector bodies based in Geneva generate large amounts of information and data on a daily basis that is relevant to the international community and general public. As the host state, Switzerland is strongly committed to making this data more accessible by developing new tools of distribution and promoting the tools of its partners. These mainly include the following:

Office of International Geneva

The Office of International Geneva website is the primary platform providing access to extensive resources to global players based in Geneva. The website has a detailed calendar of upcoming international events in Geneva and a news section updated daily. It provides access to newsletters, key information on current issues, and information on the various support services supplied by Swiss authorities and their partners. Finally, an extensive list of key players in Geneva is available in the 'Who's Who?' section.

The UNOG Perception Change Project (PCP) aims to highlight the impact of work carried out by the UN, international organisations, NGOs and other organisations based in Geneva and build a better understanding of its relevance not just in relation to humanitarian assistance, peacekeeping and global health efforts but also to people's daily lives. The PCP produces infographics, impact stories, SDG mappings and has a GVAData database that collects the most relevant publications and materials produced by International Geneva.
