Overview of the Brasilia Office

The representation of UNESCO in Brazil formally initiated on 19 June 1964 and is a national office in Latin America and the Caribbean Region. Its main objective is to support the creation and implementation of public policies that are in accordance with the strategies set by UNESCO Member States.

The Office puts its technical competence at the service of innumerable projects and initiatives within the Organization’s five thematic areas: education, natural sciences, social science, culture, communication and information. Its actions occur through projects of technical cooperation in partnership with various government levels and with different sectors of civil society whenever their purposes contribute to public policies for sustainable development.
