Mapping the World, Supporting Peace, Serving Humanity.
UN Mappers is a community of digital volunteers who collect, validate, and disseminate open geospatial data in support of UN operations worldwide. By providing more accurate location data, UN Mappers help decision-makers, field personnel, and humanitarian actors to better understand complex issues and help the UN respond more effectively to crises. Everybody can become a UN Mapper, accessing learning tools to produce data collaboratively and making a positive impact on the world.

Gender Coordination Team
Advancing Sustainable Development Goal #5 on Gender Equality.
The Gender Coordination Team is crucial to strengthening UNGSC’s action around Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (GEEW) and gender mainstreaming within the organization. Comprised of volunteers from within the UNGSC staff community, the Team works to increase sensitivity, understanding, and knowledge about gender equality, by implementing activities within the framework of policies, programmes, and projects. The Team also organizes communications initiatives; gender mainstreaming training; cultural events; sensitization campaigns; organization-wide webinars featuring expert discussants; and other interactive modalities.
