The United Nations is a complex, distributed organization composed of multiple agencies working with countless corresponding partners on various projects throughout the world. The distribution and organizational complexity of the UN made collaboration with partner organizations difficult to manage. UN agencies had no single source of truth for engaging with partner organizations. Working with a mix of disconnected systems that required manual data entry, siloed data and inefficient workflows.
The UN Partner Portal is a cross-agency initiative led by the The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP). It aims to remove operational bottlenecks by presenting a single source of truth and a streamlined digital process for managing UN Agency Partners.
