UNESCO seeks to build peace through international cooperation in education, sciences, and culture. UNESCO’s programmes contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals defined in the 2030 Agenda, adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015. UNESCO develops educational tools to help people live as global citizens free of hate and intolerance. UNESCO works to ensure that every child and every citizen has access to quality education. By promoting cultural heritage and the equal dignity of all cultures, UNESCO strengthens the bonds between nations. UNESCO fosters scientific programmes and policies as platforms for development and cooperation.
The Operational Strategy for Priority Africa 2022-2029 aims at achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations’ Agenda 2030 and the African Union’s Agenda 2063 & “The Africa We Want”, in UNESCO’s fields of competence. To achieve this pan-African vision, Africa will need to address innovatively the major challenges it faces, while seizing the opportunities they present.
