A Message from the Permanent Representative:

Welcome to the website of the Permanent Mission of the State of Kuwait to the United Nations Office and the Consulate General in Geneva.

This website is designed to provide you with essential information regarding the role of the State of Kuwait in Geneva. You will find different categories of information and links regarding various themes and issues treated by the Mission.

The reader can browse essential information concerning the role of the Kuwait Mission in supporting and working with the UN agencies to ensure that they can carry out their duties to promote development and peace, as well as to respond to humanitarian appeals, by working on a daily basis with many UN bodies and specialized agencies based in Geneva. This includes the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees, the World Health Organization and the International Labor Organization and many others.

The mandate of the Mission also covers non-UN international organizations involved in coordinating humanitarian operations worldwide such as the International Committee of the Red Cross, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and the International Organization for Migration.

The Mission is equally involved in other significant issues related to health financing such as the Global fund, the WHO health initiatives, Climate Change through the International Meteorological Organization, promotion of democracy through the Inter-Parliamentary Union, the future of communications through the International Telecommunications Union and trade-related topics through the World Trade Organization.

For many years now, the State of Kuwait has been a major donor and contributor to humanitarian activities through several of these organizations, and the Kuwait Mission oversees the disbursement of these contributions.

I appreciate your interest in the State of Kuwait, and I hope that you would find this site informative and easy to use, and that it would give you a better understanding of the country and its foreign policy. Do not hesitate, however, to contact us if you need additional information.

Together with my colleagues, I send you my best regards.
