The United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) is the primary provider of inter-agency training and learning for staff of the United Nations system. Its overall objective is to promote and support UN inter-agency collaboration, increase the operational effectiveness of the UN system as a whole, and provide UN staff with the required skills and competencies to face today’s global challenges.

Through the establishment of the Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development, the UNSSC facilitates comprehensive learning, training, and knowledge management on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as well as the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Its mission is to integrate knowledge across UN agency mandates and thematic pillars of sustainable development. The UNSSC Knowledge Centre fosters inter-agency coherence and strengthens dialogue and networks within and beyond the UN system.
