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. Under bespoke arrangements, the following organizations, offices, or teams are co-located with UNGSC:

United Nations Entities and Bodies
- United Nations International Computing Centre (UNICC)
- United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS)
- International Organization for Migration (IOM)
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.
