The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) provides innovative learning solutions to individuals, organizations, and institutions to enhance global decision-making and support country-level action for shaping a better future. UNITAR was created in 1963 to train and equip young diplomats from newly independent UN Member States with the knowledge and skills needed to navigate through the diplomatic environment. Today, the scope of UNITAR programming is truly global with an outreach spanning the entire membership of the United Nations and with over 300,000 individuals benefitting from the delivery of some 900 training and related events yearly.
