The OIC Delegation in Geneva is also accredited to the United Nations Office in Vienna (UNOV) since 1992. The UNOV, established since 1980, is serving as liaison Office with permanents missions, and governments, intergovernmental and non governmental organisations in Vienna.
The OIC Office is working closely with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) which is associated with the UNOV, and is participating also in the work of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), located in Vienna.
The OIC is accredited to UNESCO (Paris- France), which has been established since 2005 to strengthen the OIC cooperation between OIC and UNESCO and achieve the common goals in term of socio-economics, cultural and scientific development and to face challenges in the field of education, illiteracy and knowledge.
By launching the OIC in UNESCO, the OIC paves the way for better interaction together with its partner to preserve cultural and historical heritage around the world and specifically in the OIC Members States, to strengthen the dialogue among civilisations and to remove the barriers of misunderstanding by consolidating human bond connecting people.
