It has been redesigned to be more informative, user-friendly and easier to navigate, so that it is practical for those people also those who are not familiar with the UN system.

Several exciting additions to the website have now been included. A section devoted specifically to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals, information on jobs within the UN, and an interactive Media Centre have all been added.
