Planning your budget

financial aid

Funds, grants and fellowships are available to enable civil society to attend international conferences.


The Delegates Welcome Service provides logistical support to delegates who wish inexpensive accommodation. Under specific conditions, our Service may grant a subsidy to reduce accommodation costs in Geneva.


Consider a budget of around CHF 60.-/day.

  • breakfast: often included in the price of the hotel room when CAGI booked your stay,
  • lunch cafeterias within international organizations as at UNOG, have inexpensive menus (less than CHF 20.-),
  • dinner offers vary according to restaurants. Some of them have menus under CHF 30.-, and the city has a large number of take-out restaurants and international grocery stores.
