Niger joined UNESCO on November 10, 1960. The country is covered by the Cluster Office of Bamako, in Mali. In 2005, UNESCO launched the "Strengthening of Technical Capacities at the Education Ministry of Niger" project, which assisted the authorities of the country in formulating education policy.

Niger is one of 11 countries chosen to pilot-test UNESCO national education support strategies (UNESS). Launched in May 2006, this initiative aims to help governments establish coherent education policies in order to achieve Education for All.

Niger also participates in UNESCO's Teacher Training Initiative for sub-Saharan Africa (TTISSA), a 10-year project aimed at restructuring national teacher policies in 46 sub-Saharan countries. Around 115 schools in Niger are part of the Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet), and there are two UNESCO Chairs.
