United Nations Association Ethiopia

The UN Association Ethiopia was formally established after receiving its certificate from the Agency for Civil Society Organizations of Ethiopia in October 2020

United Nations Association (UNA) is a non-governmental entity that exists in various countries to enhance the relationship between the people of member states and the United Nations.

The UNA works to raise public awareness of the United Nations, its work and the general goals of the United Nations which includes but not limited to the implementation of sustainable development goals, peace, security, disarmament, human rights, humanitarian affairs, and eradicating poverty and hunger.

There are currently over 100 United Nations Associations (UNAs) around the world that provide the link between the citizens of the world and the United Nations by seeking to ensure that the United Nations is relevant to the lives of the people it exists to serve.

Similarly, the United Nations Association Ethiopia (UNA-ET) endeavors to inform, inspire and engage all Ethiopian regarding the work, goals, and values of the United Nations to create a safer, fairer and more sustainable world. UNA-ET strives to inform the Ethiopian public in an impartial and critical manner, objectives, institutions and activities of the United Nations. It intends to increase interest in and raise awareness for current events in foreign and development policy, cultural and world economic policy as well as international relations and developments in general.

The vision of UNA is “a future where the United Nations is more effective because more Ethiopians are engaged global citizens, dedicated to achieving the purpose of the United Nation.”
