Hosting of UNGSC Bases

A fundamental partnership for UNGSC is that which has been established with Host Countries and Communities. 

UNGSC is grateful to the governments of Italy and Spain for their generous support and powerful vision. Liaison teams in both Brindisi, Italy and Valencia, Spain, maintain close ties with their respective host nation, as well as with regional and municipal authorities and institutions. 

The Organization values this engagement and welcomes opportunities to further cooperation around shared goals.



UNGSC is pleased to host numerous international entities, including sections of UN departments otherwise headquartered around the world, on its premises in Brindisi and Valencia. In close cooperation with host countries Italy and Spain, UNGSC’s facilities continue to improve and expand, welcoming new co-located partners.

Academic Collaboration

UNGSC is committed to empowering the next generation and inspired by Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #4 to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. To that end, UNGSC has established partnerships with numerous academic networks and institutions. These range from university-level collaborations with practical outcomes advancing UNGSC’s work in the field to Youth Ambassador programmes, Model United Nations events, and regular engagement of secondary schools aimed at introducing young people to the work of the UN. Academic partners include:

Voluntary Contributions

Voluntary contributions of expertise, time and funds enhance our capabilities and facilitate the continual improvement of operations.  

UNGSC regularly hosts Junior Professional Officers which are sponsored by Member States through the UN JPO Programme. JPOs work as part of UNGSC in Italy or Spain where they are directly involved in supporting peacekeeping and special political missions around the world. UNGSC is also open to collaboration with accomplished experts facilitated, for example, by our partnerships with academia and/or through non-reimbursable loans, or any relevant and approved donor entity. 

Voluntary contributions also support priority projects strategically devised by UNGSC to enhance our capabilities, efficiency, and impact in the field. UNGSC sources financial contributions through multilateral instruments and is also interested in collaborating directly with individual Member States on innovative projects congruent with our common objectives.
