Welcome to UNKLESA
“Supporting Families that Support the World”
6 February 2019
UNKLESA has undergone a remarkable evolution in the past five months as we’ve pursued the goals of our 2019-2020 sustainability blueprint in order to become the leading family support organization within the UN. One of the most profound changes over this period has been our richer understanding and deeper commitment to the needs of trailing UN families that has come into focus as we have refined our views of what it means to be a platform for family mobility.
What is clearer than ever before is that we cannot achieve success in supporting families if we choose to pursue the spouse as an individual. Success, rather, requires that we consistently work to achieve our goals through integrated initiatives that place a high priority on addressing family support holistically and to UNKLESA becoming a platform for dialogue, innovative policy options, pilot projects, and creative family mobility mechanisms.
