Introduction of Partnership

Partnerships are a key enabler for meeting global challenges and generating sustainable change and long-lasting impact. Partnerships are firmly embedded in ICHEI’s way of working at national, regional and global levels at large. By joining forces with its partners, ICHEI can integrate resources, expertise and competencies better to promote all ICHEI’s missions and functions, achieve common development goals, and to strengthen visibility and impact of its action. At present, ICHEI has built relationship with governments, other intergovernmental organizations, NGOs, private sector companies, universities, and UNESCO institutes and centres, etc.

The way in which ICHEI works with partners takes different forms and includes notably:

a) Combining expertise for programme delivery through joint design and implementation of activities at national, regional or global levels;
b) Direct financial and contribution in kind including personnel secondment, volunteers, and equipment;
c) Coordination and consultation on the elaboration of programmes and on development of policies, standards and norms;
d) Sharing outreach capacity and specific networks to support UNESCO’s advocacy and policy dialogue in its priority areas and countries;
e) Providing and benefiting from technical assistance and advisory services.
