Who's who

The Natural Sciences Sector, with a staff of around 120 people in UNESCO Headquarters and Field Offices, is headed by Flavia Schlegel, the Assistant Director-General for Natural Sciences.

Programmes and activities are implemented through UNESCO Headquarters and the UNESCO Field Office network.

Three Divisions, four thematic cross-cutting units and the Secretariat of the UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission compose the Sector.

Around half of the 57 UNESCO field offices have a specialist in the natural sciences.
