UN Information Office (UNO Tbilisi), a branch office of the New York-headquartered UN Department of Public Information (UN/DPI), was established in Georgia in 1993, following the country’s formal entry into the United Nations on 31 July 1992. It is the principal source of information about the United Nations system in Georgia.
UNO is responsible for promoting greater public understanding of and support for the aims and activities of the United Nations by disseminating information on the work of the Organization to people.
UNO plays a catalytic role in partnership with national actors (civic society, academia and media) by delivering high-quality capacity development support grounded in national plans and strategies. Over the years, UNO has set up scores of educational and public information projects across Georgia. One of the key areas of UNO’s work is reproduction of UN publications in Georgian and making sure that information products are tailored in such a way to best suit Georgia’s priorities.
UNO’s capacity development role is also geared towards facilitating the development of a sustainable UN joint communication capacity base for building internal knowledge and strengthen cooperation and coordination among agencies in the area of communication.
The UN reference library, run by UNO Tbilisi, offers valuable resource material to researchers, students, and the general public on a wide range of subjects. The library provides both printed and multimedia reference materials to local libraries.
