PRIORITY AFRICA IN THE MEDIUM TERM STRATEGY

Over the medium term period 2014-2021 (37 C/4) and based on consultations with and decisions of Member States, UNESCO’s actions will focus on two major areas:

 

  • Building peace by building inclusive, peaceful and resilient societies;
  •  Building institutional capacities for sustainable development and poverty eradication.

Member States expect UNESCO to implement a stronger and better targeted strategy to build peace, eradicate poverty, and achieve inclusive sustainable development by improving the quality, equity and relevance of education, by harnessing science, technology and innovation to boost development and build  related capacities, by mobilizing the heritage and creative industries for culture and development, by promoting freedom of expression, and by using ICTs for development, gender equality and peace and citizenship education.
