UNOSDP (United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace)

UNOSDP profile

  • Overview

    The Sport for Development and Peace International Working Group (SDP IWG) is an inter-governmental policy initiative whose aim is to promote the integration of Sport for Development and Peace (SDP) policy recommendations into the national and international development strategies of national Governments.

    The SDP IWG Secretariat is hosted by the United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace (UNOSDP). The main role of UNOSDP is to support the Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General on Sport for Development and Peace in his worldwide activities as an advocate, facilitator and representative of the social purposes of sport.

    Preferences in private sector partnership

    The Secretariat of the Sport for Development and Peace International Working Group (SDP IWG) is searching for a consultant to develop their Strategic Plan on a pro-bono basis.

    Whereas the UN System receives funding from most governments around the world to run its core business, the UNOSDP entirely depends on voluntary contributions for its activities. The office provides the entry point to the UN system with regard to Sport for Development and Peace, bringing the worlds of sport and development closer together.

    In order to establish a clear strategy and future direction for the SDP IWG, a call for expression of interest to develop a Strategic Plan has been launched. It is with hope of a fruitful collaboration that we invite you to submit an application.
