Why has Global Hand built this website?

Global Hand’s goal is to help connect a disconnected world.

For this reason:

  • it has built business.un.org to establish, wherever possible, collaborative relationships between businesses and UN organisations. The site gathers a company’s interests in partnering and directs these, across the UN, to find potential matches. Any interested UN personnel can then communicate directly with the company and partner, if desired.
  • it will invite companies, if a UN match is not possible, to place their offer before a wider audience. If a company agrees, Global Hand will then pass it on to a ‘global commons’ of NGOs for whom partnerships might be possible. In short: if a partnership cannot be matched in one constituency, Global Hand’s goal is to pass it on to another.
