Natural Science Programme

Since its inception in 1945, UNESCO through its mandate has aimed to forge a culture of peace by fostering the generation and exchange of knowledge, including scientific knowledge, through international cooperation, capacity building and technical assistance to its Member States.
It works to create the conditions for genuine dialogue between civilizations, cultures and peoples based upon mutual respect and respect for shared values. The Natural Sciences Sector contributes to UNESCO’s mission by using science to build peace, to eradicate poverty and to promote sustainable development.
The two strategic objectives relevant for the natural sciences include:

• Strengthening science, technology and innovation systems and policies - nationally, regionally and globally;
• Promoting international scientific cooperation on critical challenges to sustainable development.


The work of UNESCO in the Commission is amplified through two main Divisions
