Small and developing states with limited geographical, human, and financial resources face the challenge of doing more with less: they need to employ all available methods to increase their representation, including networks, alliances, and information technology tools. The effective presence of such states in International Geneva is vital for their social and economic development, as Geneva is the main governance hub for issues such as trade, climate change, health, and migration. Yet, diplomats representing small and developing states often lack the experience and exposure to Geneva-based institutions and processes that would allow them to ensure the interests of their nations are well represented.
