Programme and Budget (C/5)
The Programme and Budget of the Organisation (document C/5) is approved every two years by the UNESCO General Conference.
The document C/5 defines for each Major Programme and other Programme Sectors and Central Services, the objectives, strategies, expected results and financial allocations, broken down by Main Line of Action (MLA). The expected results are defined for each MLA, complemented, as necessary, by performance indicators and benchmarks. The C/5 document also contains provisions for a certain number of intersectoral platforms.
UNESCO's Programme and Budget for 2012-2013 (36C/5) translates the programmatic objectives, policy directions and focus provided by the Medium-Term Strategy for 2008-2013 (document 34 C/4) into concrete thematic and policy-style approaches for the five Programme Sectors of UNESCO (Education, Natural Sciences, Social and Human Sciences, Culture, Communication and Information).
