ART - Articulating Territorial and Thematic Networks for Human Development - is an international cooperation initiative that brings together programmes and activities of several UN organizations. It promotes a new type of active multilateralism in which the United Nations system works with national and local governments to involve local communities and their social actors from the South and North in international cooperation partnerships towards human development.
The Human Development Resource Network (HDRNet) is a specialised information gateway and electronic library on human development and international co-operation.
The United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) is an autonomous UN agency engaging in multidisciplinary research on the social dimensions of contemporary problems affecting development. Through its research, UNRISD stimulates dialogue and contributes to policy debates on key issues of social development within and outside the United Nations system. The Institute conducts rigorous comparative research in collaboration with scholars and activists, primarily in the developing world, whose ideas are not sufficiently reflected in current debates.
Universitas Forum is produced by the Universitas Programme of the KIP Initiative (Knowledge, Innovations, Policies and Territorial Practices for the UN Millennium Platform).
