About the Office in Islamabad

As a specialized United Nations agency, UNESCO has been operating in Pakistan since 1958, providing the Government of Pakistan with support over seven decades. The Government of Pakistan recognizes UNESCO as a long-term strategic partner in support of achieving Pakistan’s national development plans and priorities. UNESCO’s support to Pakistan is built around the United Nations’ common support framework for Pakistan, the Pakistan One United Nations Programme III (OP III) 2018-2022, and its shared purpose ‘Delivering as One’ to achieve the SDGs in line with the Government’s priorities.

UNESCO's mission is to contribute to the building of peace, the eradication of poverty, sustainable development, and intercultural dialogue through education, the sciences, culture, communication and information.
