UNESCO Country Programming Documents

UNESCO Country Programming Documents

As announced by UNESCO’s Director-General at the 177th session of the Executive Board, UNESCO decided to launch UNESCO Country Programming Documents (UCPDs).

As spelled out in the Guidelines for the Preparation of UNESCO Country Programming Documents, UCPDs will capture all of UNESCO’s activities in a particular country, whether funded from regular or extrabudgetary resources, in a single document. Specifically, it will:

A UCPD will also focus on promoting coherence among UNESCO’s sectoral inputs and those of other partners and on fostering intersectoral and interdisciplinary engagement. Moreover, UCPDs will provide a basis for a results-based, strategic approach to the mobilization of extrabudgetary funds. Ultimately, a UCPD is expected to lead to enhanced visibility of UNESCO in terms of its contributions to national development.

To date, 20 UCPDs have been published. Others are in the process of being prepared and will soon be published.
