United Nations

Since the early 1990s, the UN’s African headquarters in Nairobi has seen sustained growth, both as the global headquarters of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UN Programme for Human Settlements (UN-Habitat ), and as a rapidly expanding regional development hub. Today, Nairobi’s UN Gigiri Complex stands as a potent symbol of the United Nations’ commitment to equitable social and economic development, and to breaking the shackles of poverty on the world’s poorest continent.

Like any organization, the UN’s diverse functions in Nairobi can only be fulfilled with the support of an efficient and proactive administrative hub. That hub is the United Nations Office at Nairobi (UNON), which since 1996 has been providing the offices of UNEP, UN-Habitat and other key agencies with vital administrative and technical support services – ensuring a smoother enabling environment for their programmes and projects, providing the most efficient use of their personnel and resources, and handling much of the time-consuming logistical details of their day-to-day activities. As well as assisting UN staff in their work, UNON provides them with a host of life-enhancing services, from personal security to professional training, domestic relocations to contractual privileges, travel arrangements to family medical support.

In Nairobi itself, UNON acts as the key administrative centre of the headquarters of UNEP and UN-Habitat, providing them with comprehensive budget and financial management support, informed human resources and procurement services, and vital safety and security coordination. It also offers a broad menu of essential ‘common services’ to other UN agencies in Kenya, provides sophisticated international conference and information facilities, and maintains a world-class business environment at Gigiri, complete with a host of competitive commercial, cultural and sporting facilities.
