United Nations Department of Public Information

The United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) helps non-governmental organizations gain access to and disseminate information about United Nations issues so the public can better understand the aims and objectives of the organizations. It is one of the members of the United Nations Development Group with its Regional Commissions (ECA, ECE, ECLAC, ESCAP, ESCWA), rotating annually.[1]
