UN & Business Partnerships: Quick guide for business users
Before you start, you might like to see a 3 minute cartoon which explains the site.
Option 1: See how you can partner
Needing ideas, inspiration, information to find out what kind of partnership suits you? This website is replete with stories, videos, FAQs, speeches and more. You can search via the Home Page or the Browse option.
Here you can browse partnership stories, Frequently Asked Questions, guidelines, information sorted by regions, global issues, industry sectors, other business organisations, UN organisations and partnership types.
Option 2: Search the UN need list.
Narrow your browse to see a list of UN needs placed on the website.
Even if you do not find a need that seems a match, you are still welcome to describe your idea for partnership.
Option 3: Say what you want to do.
It is not essential that you undertake Options 1 or 2 before Option 3. At any time, you are welcome to say how you would like to partner with the UN.
Why use a form? It may seem quicker, at first glance, to make a phone call, rather than fill out a form. But experience shows this is not the case. With over 60 organisations in the UN family, and branches of most around the world, it can take hours, or days if you phone one, and are then referred on to others who may be a match. This website does the matching work for you. The form gathers needed information in strategic fields and then simultaneously alerts UN organisations, around the world, who are also interested in the same fields. The process takes ten minutes, or less.
NOTE: If you offer goods/services, the site asks for extra details specific to these.
What happens after that?
Our goal is to maximise the chance of partnerships that benefit a world in need.
