In the 21st century, the United Nations must be effective as never before. This is why it is transforming itself into an upgraded UN 2.0. In 2023, Global Pulse greatly expanded the support it gives to the UN family to innovate and find solutions to the problems of our time. 

As the United Nations transforms its skills and culture to meet the challenges of the 21st century, UN Global Pulse is becoming a centre of excellence, supporting change that can take the world in a positive direction. 

2023 was challenging internationally, with new conflicts and growing evidence of climate change. But for Global Puse, it was also a year of progress, as we entered a new phase, unlocking more innovation, digital, data and foresight know-how for the UN family. 

Empowered by the Secretary-General’s UN 2.0 agenda – and with a new leadership team, financing platform and greater reach – Global Pulse now stands at the forefront of the UN’s transformation drive.
