Monitoring Implementation of the Recommendation

UNESCO’s Governing Bodies monitor the implementation of the Recommendation.  In particular, the General Conference periodically requests a Consolidated Report on the implementation of the Recommendation by Member States.

The next Consolidated Report will be presented to the 197th session of the UNESCO Executive Board (Document197 EX/20 Part III), and then transmitted to the 38th session of the UNESCO General Conference in November 2015.  

To prepare the Consolidated Report, the UNESCO Secretariat launched its third global consultation on the implementation of the Recommendation with Member States and civil society organisations.
