25 years of UN City - 25 UN organizations in Bonn

As the 25th organization in the 25th anniversary year of UN Bonn, an office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has recently moved to the UN Campus on the Rhine, with a branch office in Berlin. The new UNDP office aims to strengthen development policy cooperation with the German government.
