Every day, key decisions that save or improve people's lives are taken in Geneva. These are often not reported in the international media’s headlines but they make a crucial difference for their beneficiaries nonetheless.
Geneva is the place where humanitarian relief for victims of floods, earthquakes or conflicts is coordinated; where responses to environmental challenges are devised; where the fight against deadly diseases is coordinated. It offers victims of abuse, torture and violence forums to be heard and seek redress. Governments come here to negotiate key agreements in the fields of trade, disarmament and conflicts. Regulatory frameworks for telecommunications and the protection of innovations are developed and implemented in this major cooperation platform.
