To achieve ever increasing mandates with shrinking budgets – the rallying call of doing more with less, we need to ensure that the United Nations Office at Nairobi - as the only UN Headquarters in the global south - is nimble and continues to harness synergies needed to achieve economies of scale.
As one of the Divisions of UNON, I am pleased to note that the Division of Conference Services (DCS) has continued to meet its mandated activities in servicing all aspects of both calendar and non-calendar meetings. DCS has a good brand that clients are happy with and they have clearly demonstrated confidence that the service delivery has value for money. It has enabled clients to come back to DCS time and again for conference services.
In order to expand the client base and to increase capacity utilization in the conference center and print shop, UNON has asked Member States to consider proposals aimed at addressing the deteriorating conditions and the limited capacity of the conference services facility at the United Nations Office at Nairobi.
