UNESCO: United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization

The country is covered by the UNESCO Cluster Office in Windhoek, Namibia.

The country has limited supplies of safe water, and other environmental challenges exist: overhunting of wildlife populations, soil erosion, and soil degradation. Swaziland’s poverty looms large, and the country is currently attempting to promoting education, science, and research in order to create a more highly trained and qualified work force. A UNESCO Chair for women in science and technology was established at the University of Swaziland in 1995.
