Niue

    Niue joined UNESCO on 26 October 1993. The country is covered by the UNESCO Office in Apia, Samoa.

    Niue is a tropical island in the Pacific Ocean, east of the Tonga Islands. It is one of the largest coral islands in the world. Food crops (taro, yams, manioc, bananas) and coconut palm plantations are found mainly on the coast. A beekeeping industry has developed and honey has become an important export. The 3,200 hectares of dense forest in the islandís interior supply a small-scale timber industry. Tourism has been developing since 1975.

    Niue is participating in UNESCOís Pacific Islands Global Ocean Observing System, a monitoring network aimed at improving management of marine resources.
    The country has two schools participating in UNESCOís Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet).
