The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) is a global nonprofit organization representing and coordinating a membership of over 100 national United Nations Associations (UNAs) and their thousands of constituents. Guided by a vision of a United Nations that is a powerful force in meeting common global challenges and opportunities, WFUNA works to strengthen and improve the United Nations. WFUNA strives to achieve this through the engagement of people who share a global mindset and support international cooperation – global citizens.
WFUNA works to support the role of Peace Operations through its global network of UNAs, serving as a bridging gap between the UN, Member States and civil society. Engaging youth representatives and the WFUNA Youth Network in the emerging role of Peace Operations is an additional core focus area. WFUNA has been actively engaged with the Challenges Forum since early 2015, and has brought members from around the world to multiple Challenges Forum events and meetings. WFUNA will continue to work to raise awareness and communicate emerging developments in UN Peace Operations to a wider global audience.
