Bonn is the German United Nations City and a centre of international dialogue on many key issues of the future. As well as several UN secretariats located in Bonn (Climate Secretariat, Secretariat of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification and UN Volunteers Programme), many other foreign institutions and non-governmental-organisations dealing with environmental and sustainable development issues established their headquarters or representative offices in Bonn. Apart from the UN and their satellite institutions other large private enterprises located in Bonn employ people from many foreign countries who call Bonn their home.
