United Nations Fund for International Partnerships (UNFIP)

The United Nations Fund for International Partnerships (UNFIP) was established in March 1998 by then United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan. UNFIP is responsible for administering and developing partnerships between the agencies, departments, and programmes of the United Nations and the private sector. UNFIP works with foundations and corporations that wish to support UN causes to identify opportunities for partnership and collaboration. In particular, UNFIP facilitates the UN's work with the United Nations Foundation, which Ted Turner established to donate $1 billion to the UN over the course of 15 years, though UNFIP has also worked closely with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the [http://www.fordfound.org Ford Foundation] , the [http://www.rockfound.org Rockefeller Foundation] , the [http://www.synergos.org Synergos Institute] , and the [http://www.ltbfoundation.org LTB Foundation] , among others.

UNFIP's priority areas within the MDGs, as identified on its website, are children's health; population and women; environment, including biodiversity, energy, and climate change; and peace, security, and human rights.

UNFIP is led by an Executive Director, Amir A. Dossal, and overseen by an [http://www.un.org/unfip/YAdvisoryBoard.htm Advisory Board] which is chaired by Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro. The Fund's offices are located at United Nations Headquarters in New York.
