Contractual Arrangements

In partnership with UNESCO logo English version
  • Under a contractual arrangement, UNESCO authorizes the use of its name and logo by other organizations or partners which have concluded a formal agreement with programme sectors or field offices. This could concern, for example, an international conference, a publication that UNESCO has commissioned or agreed to support, or a partnership project between UNESCO and the private sector.
  • In the case that UNESCO’s name and logo is to be used in long-term or permanent activities agreed by contractual arrangement, UNESCO will always include a standard clause in the agreement stipulating that partner organizations are required to seek specific approval each time UNESCO’s name and logo is to be used.
  • For activities of national scope, please contact the National Commission for UNESCO in your country. It will inform you of the possibility of concluding a contractual arrangement with itself.
  • Contact the person in the programme sector, field office or National Commission who is responsible for making the contractual arrangement to obtain authorization for the use of UNESCO’s name and logo.
  • Organizations that use UNESCO’s name and logo under a contractual arrangement are required, as with use under patronage, to report to UNESCO and the related National Commission on the impact of the use.
