Basic & Engineering Sciences
Science has to play the key role to provide a solid underpinning for sound decision- and policy-making on sustainable development. This was underlined by the World Summit on Sustainable Development (Johannesburg, 2002).
One of the priorities of the UNESCO Moscow Office is to contribute to achieving the goals set up during this summit and the World Conference on Science (Budapest, 1999).
The Office focuses its efforts on:
- Promoting basic sciences and enhancing capacity building in Science and Technology as the main foundation for sustainable development within the cluster countries.
- Capacity building enhancement in engineering sciences with an emphasis on education on renewable and alternative energy resources.
