United Nations Office for Partnerships (UNOP) - United Nations Fund for International Partnerships (UNFIP)
The United Nations Office for Partnerships (UNOP) strives to serve as a gateway for partnership building between the private sector, foundations and other non-State actors and the United Nations system in furtherance of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
UNOP’s field of work falls into four integrated areas:
- The Office serves as the operational interface between the United Nations Foundation and the United Nations system in support of high-impact projects implemented throughout the world by UN system agencies;
- UNOP also serves as the administrative hub for the United Nations Democracy Fund (UNDEF), providing administrative support for UNDEF's operations;
- Additionally, the Office advises, guides and facilitates partnership events and initiatives between the United Nations and non-state actors (such as private sector, foundation and civil society) in support of the Sustainable Development Goals.
- Moreover, UNOP serves as the Secretariat for the Secretary-General's Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Advocates. The SDG Advocates are 17 eminent personalities from business, sport, entertainment, academia and advocacy, appointed by the Secretary-General and led by co-chairs HE Erna Solberg, Prime Minister of Norway, and HE Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of Ghana. The Advocates engage global audiences to raise awareness of the SDGs and accelerate efforts to achieve the Goals by 2030.
The United Nations Fund for International Partnerships (UNFIP) was established in 1998 to serve as the interface between the United Nations Foundation and the United Nations system.See more
