UNESCO in Tanzania was established in 1974 and is recognized for the central role played in providing material and moral support to the liberation movements which led to the struggle for independence in Southern Africa. The UNESCO Dar es Salaam Office still carries with it the responsibility to support the protection, conservation and promotion of this heritage.

UNESCO Dar es Salaam is a National Office in the East African Region that works in collaboration with the Government, Civil Society, Private Sector and development partners within the UN Delivering as One framework with other UN Agencies to develop and strengthen policies and programmes with the aim to further the building of peace, poverty eradication, sustainable development and intercultural dialogue through education, the sciences, culture, communication and information.
