Bureau of Strategic Planning

Read the C/4 and C/5 Regional Strategies Presentation >>>

The Bureau of Strategic Planning's principal task is to prepare the Organization's Medium-Term Strategy and the biennial Programme and Budget, ensuring that the strategic objectives and priorities set by the General Conference and the Executive Board -- including women, youth, least developed countries, Africa as well as specific strategies -- are duly taken into account at all stages of programme elaboration and implementation. These functions are complemented by a monitoring of implementation and related reporting. 

The Bureau is organised into two divisions:

BSP manages and develops SISTER, (System of Information on Strategies, Tasks and the Evaluation of Results) the main tool for a results-based programming system to cover both regular and extrabudgetary funds.

BSP also provides a strategic, programmatic focus for two cross-cutting themes and several issues of a cross-sectoral nature, including follow-up to the United Nations Year for Dialogue among Civilizations and the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World.

Overall, BSP is responsible for UNESCO's participation in and contribution to inter-agency programme efforts within the United Nations system to ensure coherence of orientations and efforts, especially in the follow-up to the United Nations Millennium Declaration.
