ACCESS to UN Gigiri Compound

24 Jul 2020

We have received daily reports from UNDSS of UN-Habitat staff members attempting to access the UN Gigiri compound for various office-related reasons. This message is intended to establish a protocol around this situation.

Essential staff : the list is with UNDSS and essential staff should have no issue to access the compound.

Non-essential staff:  in the event that non-essential staff  require to access the UN compound and email request should be sent 1 day in advance:

  • For IT helpdesk matters: you should make prior arrangements with Leon Osong (leon.osong@un.org) through an email request (cleared by your supervisor).  Leon will then determine if access is justified and arrange your access through UNDSS.
  •     For other matters: you should make prior arrangements with Mohamed Robleh  (Mohamed.robleh@un.org ) through an email request (cleared by your supervisor). Mohamed will then determine if access is justified and arrange your access through UNDSS.
  • In all cases, access should be on an urgent need basis (important for your work) and brief (no more than 2 hours).

Please take this very seriously as we are collectively responsible for our own health and safety.

I thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
