Databases and software

This section provides access to information and data-processing tools created by UNESCO's Communication and Information Sector to collect data on specific domains related to the Sector activities and share it through a network of partners. The UNESCO Secretariat is responsible for maintaining the tools and selecting partner institutions that provide relevant information.

  • CDS/ISIS database software
    Micro CDS/ISIS is an advanced non-numerical information storage and retrieval software developed by UNESCO to satisfy the need expressed by many institutions, especially in developing countries, to be able to streamline their information processing activities by using modern (and relatively inexpensive) technologies.

  • Database of African Journalism Schools
    Information on this database will be useful for journalism teachers, students, textbook publishers, donors and the media industry itself.

  • Greenstone digital library software 2.80: a software suite for building and distributing digital library collections

  • IDAMS Statistical Software
    WinIDAMS is a software package for the validation, manipulation and statistical analysis of data, developed by the UNESCO Secretariat in co-operation with experts from various countries. It is distributed free-of-charge upon request.

  • IFAP Projects Database
    This database provides online access to over 500 projects submitted to the Information for All Programme (IFAP), whether they are funded or not. It contains basic information on projects, up to date information on their implementation, statistical data as well as some concrete stories demonstrating how access to information and knowledge can change people’s lives.

  • IPDC Projects Database
    This database contains basic information on the projects supported by the International Programme for the Development of Communication (IPDC) since its creation in 1980. It provides information on the number of projects by country and by region, the amounts allocated, as well as more detailed information on recent projects, including the objectives and results.
