Business Continuity


With the onset of COVID-19 and the related restrictions on meetings, UN Geneva has offered online and hybrid meeting organization as a business continuity measure. Funds were identified on an exceptional basis by the United Nations Controller to cover the additional costs of servicing these meetings. 

Should organs and bodies require services for hybrid or remote meetings, the related additional costs will have to be covered by them. 

N.B. Substantive secretariats need to be mindful that in the absence of an official mandate for remote participation, UN Geneva may not have the authority to provide hybrid meeting services once business continuity measures are fully lifted. 

Meeting participants are wearing masks and are sitting leaving space between them.
