Where we work
UNESCO Venice Office is the organization's office for the Europe & North America region.
Countries of South East Europe as priority, but also Central Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. This coverage is extended to selected Eastern European countries since there are fields where Eastern European countries cooperate with SEE.
The geographical scope of the Office includes countries of South-Eastern Europe as well as other EU and non-EU countries in Central Europe and Mediterranean. The cooperation is occasionally extended to selected Eastern European countries. In addition to the EU programmes for SEE countries, a main challenge is the cooperation with the other UN Agencies, Funds and Programmes in the One UN countries in order to implement the One UN Programme.
UNESCO's strong representation in the SEE region is strengthened with the establishment of an Antenna Office in Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) to actively participate in the joint UN initiatives at the country level.
