Prev News 7 of 8 Next
UNESCO was actively involved in recent meetings of the American Council of Sports and the Iberoamerican Sport Council, providing keynote addresses on the Convention and promoting adherence to this international instrument. During the meetings Ministers and senior officials responsible for sport gave their strong endorsement of the Convention and supported its implementation.
Support for the ConventionThe VI Americas Council of Sport Meeting agreed to:
    “strive to accept, ratify, accede or approve the UNESCO International Convention against Doping in Sport as soon as possible in order to strengthen governmental commitment and engagement in the fight against doping in sport.” Rio de Janeiro, 2006
Commonwealth Governments also gave due consideration to the Convention at the Meeting of Sports Ministers held on 15 March 2006 in Melbourne, Australia, prior to the opening of the Commonwealth Games. Commonwealth Sports Ministers, in the final communiqué of the meeting:
    “noted the UNESCO International Convention against Doping in Sport was adopted by Member States on 19 October 2005 and agreed to take steps to ratify the Convention as soon as possible, with all aiming to do so by the end of 2006.” Melbourne, 2006
UNESCO was greatly encouraged by these resolute political declarations in support of the Convention and to have such clear and purposeful regional statements, involving more than 95 Member States. The key task now is to translate such political commitments into action and to bring the Convention into force.
