Thematic Areas of Action
UNESCO’s Office in Tashkent was established in 1996 as a project office in the field of culture. Over the years, the Office’s programme portfolio has expanded and now includes activities in all of UNESCO’s areas of competence – education, the sciences, culture, and communication and information.
Through its country programme, which is guided by UNESCO’s Medium-Term Strategy (34 C/4) and Programme and Budget for 2012-2013 (36 C/5), UNESCO supports the achievement of national development goals in Uzbekistan and, ultimately, contributes to “the building of peace, the alleviation of poverty, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue."Back to top
