Dear Maxi,
I think that the UN should financially support your participation if they are serious about the initiative. Speaking from experience inside out it seems not so good practice to have people fund their own participation. And although money can be an issue within the system, it is definitely a matter of prioritizing. IMHO honest prioritizing towards the use of FOSS is reflected by the UN's will to fund this (minimal!) expense. 
My 2 cents. Cheers,
Jeroen
