UN Secretariat, UN Women, FAO, UNDP Crisis Bureau, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNICEF and WFP, with operational support from UNICC, have joined forces to deliver the UN Partner Portal, designed to bring about a harmonized, efficient and easy collaboration between Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and their UN partners.
The development of the UN Partner Portal draws on decades of successful partnerships between the UN and civil society, consultations with networks of NGOs, as well as best practices in partnership management, to support the harmonisation and simplification of business processes. Benefits include:
The Portal is designed to encourage harmonization within the UN and it is expected that more UN Agencies and their associated Partners will join the Portal in the near future.
The Portal also represents the efforts of UNHCR, UNICEF and WFP to implement the 2016 World Humanitarian Summits' Grand Bargain commitments to reduce duplication and management costs and enhance partnerships with local and national actors.
