Sustainable capacity development and education for sustainable development: UNESCO's Role and Contribution (since the International Mauritius Meeting of January 2005 and future activities)

With education and capacity building forming the core of UNESCO's work, there are multiple strands to the Organization's substantive contribution to this part of the Mauritius Strategy. These strands include its priority concern with basic education and its lead role in the UN-wide, decade-long initiative of education for sustainable development. Also, work in such fields as promoting technical and vocational education, improving the quality of education, taking advantage of the opportunities offered by new information and communication technologies, and tailoring education and training to the special needs of particular groups within society.

Crucial to these diverse contributions are field offices in the different SIDS regions, and well as specialized centres and institutes and several networks of cooperation (some well-established, others new).
