Ethics Policies

The policies in this section relate to the establishment of the UNFPA Ethics Office and organizational processes for preventing and mitigating conflicts of interest.

Please note that the Policies and Procedures Manual is necessarily a "living document" subject to changes and updates. All policies, even those needing minor or substantive revision are  official policy of the UNFPA and therefore are in effect.
