Namibia joined the Organization on 2 November 1978. It hosts a UNESCO Cluster Office based in Windhoek (covering Angola, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland).

UNESCO and Namibia worked closely together to develop the country’s Education for All Plan. A project on Capacity Building and Human Resource Development in Teacher Education is ongoing.

Namibia is expanding its science and technology sector, with ties to various UNESCO programmes.

In the field of culture, Twyfelfontein and its Stone Age petroglyphs became Namibia’s first World Heritage site in 2007.
