Unitar’s Response To Covid-19 Pandemic


As the novel Coronavirus spreads globally, we would like to update you on what UNITAR is doing as a response to this unprecedented health crisis. We are committed to continuing to deliver our learning solutions as much as possible during this difficult time.

We are following recommendations by the World Health Organization (WHO), the public authority of the host country (Switzerland) and the UN Headquarters, and have put in place measures to address the current situation and mitigate the potential spread of the virus.

All UNITAR personnel, except for critical staff, is working remotely until 14 April 2020 or until further notice.  We are currently reviewing all of our project portfolio to adapt to the current situation and project partners will be contacted shortly.  Our online courses are running on our learning platform as usual, and some of our face-to-face courses are being converted into an online format.

If you are planning to participate in a UNITAR upcoming course(s) and have questions, please address your questions to your event focal point on the event page, listed on the online catalogue.

While we are taking necessary measures to protect health and safety of employees, we will continue providing learning solutions to our beneficiaries as much as possible.  We appreciate your support during this difficult and uncertain time.
