Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.

Strengthening the UN

Delivering Results

Countries and citizens around the world provide resources to the United Nations, and count on it to work on their behalf for a better and more secure world.

Giving life-saving support to populations hit by humanitarian crises; helping build and keep the peace in conflict-ridden areas; supporting governments and their citizens to advance development and fight poverty; and promoting human rights worldwide: these are the core pillars of the work of the United Nations and the mandates it receives from its Member States.

Every day the UN works to tackle global challenges and deliver results for those most in need.
