United Nations Fund for International Partnerships
The United Nations Fund for International Partnerships (UNFIP) is an autonomous trust fund, headed by an Executive Director and operating under the leadership of the UN Deputy Secretary-General. UNFIP seeks to facilitate partnerships between the United Nations System and the United Nations Foundation (UNF) -- the public charity responsible for administering, over a period of 15 years, Ted Turner’s US$1 billion contribution in support of United Nations causes.
UNFIP collaborates with UNF to encourage private sector investment initiatives, campaigns and projects on the ground to achieve the Millennium Development Goals in four priority areas:
1. Children’s Health;
2. Population and Women (focus on adolescent girls);
3. Environment (biodiversity, energy and climate change); and
4. Peace and Security, and Human Rights.
