    Denmark has received accolades for being a generous donor, notably to multilateral agencies. Proof: The Danish government is constructing a 28,000-square-meter complex that will house, by 2013, all 1,300 employees of the six United Nations agencies based in the Nordic country.

    The U.N. City, which includes a building and a warehouse, will rise on a pier in the northern part of the Copenhagen harbor. The project’s completion cements the Danish capital’s standing as the sixth largest U.N. city.
