in Bonn, Germany
|Bonn is the 19th largest
city in Germany. Located in the Cologne/Bonn Region, about 20 kilometres
south of Cologne on the river Rhine in the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia,
it was the capital of West Germany from 1949 to 1990 and the official seat
of government of united Germany from 1990 to 1999. Starting in 1998, many
national government institutions were moved from Bonn to Berlin. Both houses
of the German national parliament, the Bundestag as well as the Bundesrat,
were moved along with the Chancellery and the residence of German head
of state, the Bundespräsident.
Bonn remains a centre of politics
and administration, however. Roughly half of all government jobs were retained
as many government departments remained in Bonn and numerous sub-ministerial
level government agencies relocated to the former capital from Berlin and
other parts of Germany. In recognition of this, the former capital now
holds the title of Federal City ("Bundesstadt").
|Bonn has developed into
a hub of international cooperation in particular in the area of environment
and sustainable development. In addition to a number of other international
organizations and institutions, such as, for instance, the IUCN Environmental
Law Center (IUCN ELC) the City currently hosts 17 United Nations institutions.
Among these are two of the so-called Rio Conventions, the United Nations
Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the United Nations
Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD). The number of UN agencies
in Bonn, most of which are based at the newly established United Nations
Campus in the city's former parliamentary quarter on the banks of the Rhine,
continues to grow. The most recent agency was started in 2007 in Bonn as
the United Nations Platform for Space-based Information for Disaster Management
and Emergency Response (UN-SPIDER).
Bonn is the seat of some of Germany's
largest corporate players, chiefly in the areas of telecommunications and
logistics. Simultaneously, Bonn is establishing itself as an important
national and international centre of meetings, conventions and conferences,
many of which are directly related to the work of the United Nations. A
new conference centre capable of hosting thousands of participants is currently
under construction in the immediate vicinity of the UN Campus.
From 1597 to 1794, it was the residence
of the Archbishops and Prince-electors of Cologne, and is the birthplace
of Ludwig van Beethoven (born 1770).
