UNITAR's new vision of training and capacity-building is based on the conviction that partnerships constitute a master-piece in international, national and local efforts to initiate change. 

Through the Institute-wide reform, new orientations for partnerships and relations with UN Member States, UN institutions, governments, intergovernmental organizations, academies and the private sector have been designed to provide UNITAR’s units and programmes with a framework to support our goals.  

A strategic partnership can improve synergies for both beneficiaries and contributes to an overall increase in institutional capacity. Investing in people is fundamental to deliver as one, excel in response to training needs, and innovate. Through partnerships with governments, academies, intergovernmental organizations, the private companies, foundations and the civil society, it makes it possible for UNITAR to consolidate and extend its capacity to provide a global platform for knowledge transfer.
