Education in Life Sciences

As with all other areas of science, efforts are being stepped up for effective teaching and learning of the biological sciences at all levels and the building of capacity in this regard.

Moreover, information and building of awareness at the level of policy-makers as well as in the general public about biological processes and areas such as biotechnology, microbiology and genetics, disease and its prevention, have become important tools in the development of preventive health strategies and in empowering consumer participation in making informed choices in their everyday lives.

These efforts are being promoted through UNESCO's International Basic Sciences Programme (IBSP) and cross cutting initiatives in science education.
