Participation Programme

UNESCO's Participation Programme is designed to provide direct assistance to initiatives undertaken by Member States in the Organization's fields of competence, in line with priorities determined by the countries themselves, with proposals submitted via UNESCO National Commissions. The funds are modest (up to a maximum of US$26,000 granted for national project requests, with about six projects per country in each biennium, and up to US$46,000 for regional submissions). But UNESCO is not a funding agency. And support at these sorts of level may often be easier to assimilate than higher orders of financial contribution.

As an ensemble, Participation Programme projects touch on many of the technical fields and areas of concern addressed in the Barbados Programme of Action. The vast majority of these projects concern such topics as education and capacity building, culture and communication, though a very few do relate to Natural and environmental disasters, as in these approved projects from the 2002-2003 biennium.

  • Cuba. Restoration of 'Teatro Sauto and 'Teatro Thomas Terry' damaged by Hurricane Michel.
  • Niue. Fostering national capabilities for disaster monitoring, disaster reduction coordination and disaster mitigation..
  • Papua New Guinea. Emergency assistance for building classrooms after eruption of Mount Ulawun volcano.
