United Nations Social Development Network (UNSDN)

Online survey launched on promoting the empowerment of people

An online survey on promoting the empowerment of people was launched by DSPD/DESA to help promote the priority theme selected by the Commission for Social Development for 2013 and 2014.

DSPD has also piloted a new project called United Nations Social Development Network (UNSDN) to share knowledge and good practices among social development professionals worldwide on ageing, civil society, cooperatives, disability, employment, family, indigenous peoples, poverty, social integration, technology and youth. 

UNSDN is uniquely positioned to disseminate information and knowledge produced by the United Nations system in the area of social development, particularly on the three core issues of poverty eradication, employment generation and social integration. UNSDN will act as a major interface between DESA’s work in the area of social development and that of its partners involved in advancing the global social development agenda. More information:
