About the office in Beijing

UNESCO Beijing Cluster Office was established in 1984. It is responsible for UNESCO’s projects and work in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Japan, Mongolia, the People’s Republic of China and the Republic of Korea. Altogether, these countries encompass about 1/5 of the world’s population, around 25% of global economic output, and over 5,000 years of rich history and culture.

In the five countries it serves, UNESCO Beijing Cluster Office has helped to establish 22 UNESCO Category 2 Centers, 60 Biosphere Reserves, and 95 World Heritage Sites; has built capacities of key decision-making institutions; helped strengthen policies, standards, and practices in UNESCO’s areas of work; promoted cooperation between countries within and outside the region; and made a lasting impact on people’s lives.
