Partner with us

The UPU cannot deliver alone. Partnerships help strengthen and accelerate the development impact of our projects and policies through both concrete country-level efforts and global and regional initiatives. 

With the support of partnerships and stakeholder engagement, the UPU aims to co-create and implement solutions and policies by leveraging local and global postal networks. 

As stated in Sustainable Development Goal 17, achieving the ambitious targets of the 2030 Agenda requires a revitalized and enhanced global partnership that brings together governments, civil society, the private sector, United Nations system and other actors, and mobilizes all available resources.  

The UPU is committed to working closely with partners from the private sector and across the UN system, alongside industry stakeholders and organizations that share the objectives of inclusive, innovative and sustainable development across its 192 member countries.
