UN-HABITAT seeks alliances with the business community that can help us fulfill our mission, by supporting our work, directly or indirectly. UN-HABITAT’s alliances with the business community can take many forms: programmatic alliances, advocacy, fundraising support or contributions in-kind.
UN-HABITAT seeks alliances with the business community whose actions and behaviour demonstrate a willingness to exercise corporate responsibility. UN-HABITAT seeks to work with businesses that demonstrate a commitment and affinity with UN-HABITAT’s mandate which fit its strategic focus, programmes and fundraising goals.
UN-HABITAT follows the Guidelines on Cooperation between the United Nations and the Business Community issued by the Secretary-General of the United Nations on 17 July 2000 (http://www.un.org/partners/business/otherpages/guide.htm)
More specific guidelines will be available in 2007.
