The United Nations Global Alliance for ICT and Development (UNGAID) has decided to grant UNESCO's Open Training Platform (OTP) the Flagship Partnership Initiative status.

The Open Training Platform will increase the number of Flagship Initiatives, adding on to major projects like “Better Connectivity with Broadband to Africa” or “telecentre 2.0”. Thus the Open Training Platform is recognised as a valuable tool matching existing learning needs and learning resources, unlocking and maximising people's learning opportunities for improvement of living conditions and poverty reduction using ICT. So far, 71 000 visitors have visited the website since March 2007 and around 2200 learning resources in all categories with focus on entrepreneurship, disaster, food security, agriculture, languages and environment.
