UN Platform for Palestine

UN Platform for Palestine (UNPfP) was created by the Working Group within the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People to foster strong cooperation with civil society organizations (CSOs).

The purpose of UNPfP is to create a central location for CSOs  around the world to inform, share and mobilize among themselves regarding international, regional and local efforts in support of the Palestinian people and the just cause of Palestine. This platform will provide CSOs active on the question of Palestine with the tools to produce a multiplier effect, connect with other groups and hopefully raise greater awareness and support for collective efforts. It will also build a bridge between CSOs and the United Nations and its Member States, including the Committee and its Working Group.
