PDF File Size: 9 KB | Download   
The UNESCO Office in Kathmandu has just released the “UNESCO Country Programming Document for Nepal 2011-2013”, the first comprehensive programme outlining the most important areas of UNESCO’s contribution to the country’s peace and development agenda. Highlights of the programme are the fight against illiteracy, the preservation of Nepal’s cultural heritage and the development of media. In addition to succinctly presenting the country’s situation in the areas of education, natural sciences, culture and communication and information, the UNESCO Country Programming Document for Nepal (UCPD) reviews UNESCO’s past action and achievements in Nepal and outlines areas of UNESCO’s potential contributions to the country’s development, including to the next United Nations Development Assistance Framework. “The UCPD reflects the close links between the priorities and programmes of the Government of Nepal and UNESCO’s areas of competence” says outgoing Minister of Education and President of the Nepal National Commission for UNESCO, Ganga Lal Tuladhar, in his preface to the publication. The UCPD demonstrates how UNESCO can contribute to address the challenges that Nepal faces in its transitional political situation. In this context, UNESCO has an increasingly important role to play in assisting national stakeholders to provide educational opportunities to all girls and
boys and women and men in Nepal so that they can become responsible and independent actors for democracy and contribute to national socio-economic development. UNESCO also
intends to strengthen institutional and individual capacities in science, technology and
innovation. Another area of its activities is to help create a sense of national identity and coherence building on the very diverse, yet commonly shared heritage. And UNESCO assists in creating conditions in Nepal that are conducive to give access to information and knowledge as building blocks of empowerment and transparent governance. Since 1953, when Nepal joined UNESCO, the organization has become a reliable partner for both the government and a great number of civil society organizations. It assists in strategy and policy development in education, natural sciences, culture, and communication and information. The Kathmandu Office. which was opened in 1998, works mostly at the upstream level and focuses on selected target areas and population groups implementing UNESCO’s main functions as a laboratory of ideas, a standard-setter, a clearing house, a capacity builder and a catalyst for international cooperation.
