The 11th Session of the IGC of MOST was presideded by its President, H.E. Alicia Kirchner, Minister of Social Development, Argentina.

It assessed the implementation of the decisions adopted at the 10th Session endorsed by the 186th Session of UNESCO's Executive Board and General Conference, and discussed how to move the programme forward to respond to the decisions in the most optimal way.
