Become a partner
Becoming a partner of UNESCO allows to work on promoting shared values, knowledge and networking opportunities, as well as sharing strategic priorities. Partnership focuses on areas that are strategic priorities shared by UNESCO and its partners. UNESCO offers its partners the opportunity to channel their support to global programs that are coordinated from UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.
UNESCO's programmes respond to the needs of its Member States that fall within its biennial program and budget. This provides partners with the assurance that their engagement with UNESCO is part of a broader plan and linked to high-level results, including the 2030 Agenda. UNESCO expects its partners to commit to its vision and values.
UNESCO's engagement with donors is always framed by a commitment to transparency, impact, mutual accountability and the pursuit of a long-term sustainable partnership.
