Delegation in New York
After an initial agreement with Dianova International in 2014, an additional agreement has been signed in 2015 with the United Methodist Church. Under the terms of this agreement, Dianova opened an office located opposite the UN headquarters and recruited a person in charge of international relations. Dianova has since maintained an active presence in the meetings organized by the UN or the Organization of American States and reinforced its capacity for advocacy within international organizations and through the various NGO committees to which it belongs.
