Inter-Agency Cooperation
For UNESCO, joining forces with youth programmes of our sister agencies of the United Nations system is a priority in order to ensure that our action with and for young people has a real impact.
 

Youth has always been a major focus in UNESCO’s programmes. Since its creation, and its mandated mission regarding education, UNESCO was the first agency of the UN System to define and develop specific programmes for young people. Immediately after the Second World War for example, UNESCO (with only 20 Member States at the time) helped organize international youth-volunteer work camps to aid in the reconstruction of Europe.

In its quest for building and strengthening partnerships with young people around the world, UNESCO works closely with its partner organizations of the United Nations system. Many agencies, funds and programmes of the United Nations system have youth-related policies, projects and programmes aimed at empowering youth to become key partners for development and peace. For UNESCO, joining forces with youth programmes of our sister agencies of the United Nations system is a priority in order to ensure that our action with and for young people has a real impact.

What UNESCO does…
Inter-agency cooperation in the various domains related to the development and well-being of young people is one of three key areas for UNESCO’s youth-centered activities in 2006 and 2007. Below, you will find some examples of recent projects and initiatives developed in cooperation with partners of the UN system and/or youth programmes of other intergovernmental organizations.
