UNOV


United Nations Office at Vienna

www.unvienna.org

 

Employees: 825
In Vienna since: 1979

The United Nations Office at Vienna (UNOV) was opened in Vienna on 1 January 1980. This makes Vienna, in addition to New York, Geneva and Nairobi, one of the offices of the United Nations, and the only UN office in the European Union.

UNOV provides administrative support for the different bodies of the United Nations in Vienna (IAEA, CTBTO, UNIDO), which involves, among other things, organising conferences and interpreter services for more than 2000 conferences and meetings each year. UNOV also comprises the Office for Outer Space Affairs (OOSA) and the United Nations Information Service (UNIS), and is closely associated with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), which has been at the centre of all UN efforts in the fight against crime, drugs and terrorism.

The Office for Drug Control and Crime Prevention (ODCCP), established in 1997, was renamed the Office on Drugs and Crime (ODC) in 2002. In the wake of the restructuring completed in 2003, the previously separate United Nations International Drug Control Programme (UNDCP) and Centre for International Crime Prevention (CICP) were merged into a single administrative unit. Since 2002, UNODC has been headed by Antonio Maria Costa, who is also Director-General of the United Nations Office at Vienna.
