UNESCO Windhoek seeks to support the government of the Republic of Namibia to achieve its own National Development Plan (NDP) in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
As part of the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) in Namibia, UNESCO Windhoek works in synergy with the United Nations Sister Agencies to implement UNPAF (United Nations Partnership Framework) for 2019-2023. UNESCO is leading Outcome 2 – “Education and Skills” within Pillar 2 on "Social Transformation". This outcome aims to ensure vulnerable children and young people in Namibia have equitable access to inclusive quality education and life-long learning by 2023, through Early Childhood Development (ECD) programmes, pre-primary and secondary education as well as Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) among others.
