Living Conditions:

Bogotá is the capital of Colombia and one of the most populated cities in Latin America, so that subsistence expenses (including housing expenses) are higher than in other cities. Living and working conditions in Bogotá present “low” risks. The city has security problems common to most growing capitals, however this does not create a permanent risk exposure for national and international staff. In Bogotá there are complete health services.

As this is a national UN Volunteer assignment, the UN Volunteer will be responsible for arranging his/her own housing and other living essentials. National UN Volunteers are part of the malicious insurance plan.
