Chapter Summary

The United Nations Fund for International Partnerships (UNFIP) plays a lead role in forging new partnerships in development assistance. Building partnerships for development with the private sector and civil society, UNFIP mobilizes intellectual capital, technology, expertise, delivery systems and other resources, in addition to funding, in order to advance global causes. The UN, composed of 191 Member States, provides the opportunity for a truly global partnership. For instance, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) alone has a presence in 166 countries. UN partnerships range from global multi-stakeholder, multi-issue initiatives to local projects between two partners. Innovative partnerships are a promising avenue, but not a panacea, for tackling global problems. The United Nations is identifying methodologies for assessing partnerships based on best practices. The possibilities for partnership and cooperation with the UN are endless.
