Office of the UNSGSA

United Nations

A small staff works closely with Queen Máxima and her secretariat in The Hague to coordinate and advance her UN and G20 activities in the field of inclusive finance for development. The office of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA) is housed at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in New York and receives generous financial support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

More information on Queen Máxima's royal activities can be found on the official website of the Royal House of the Netherlands.
