About UNESCO Office in Kabul

To build peace in the minds of men and women, UNESCO works across education, culture, communication and information, and the natural and social sciences. Since 1948, UNESCO has been working with the Government of Afghanistan to strengthen technical cooperation particularly in the areas of education, culture, and communication and information. Since 2002, UNESCO has re-opened its Office in Kabul.

Check the document “One UN - One Programme: 2018 - 2021” that is based on past performance, available resources and those foreseen to be available in the future. In other words, the focus is on what UN agencies can actually deliver. Further, UN agencies do not see their role as supporting all of the ANPDF, but rather to centre work where the UN has a comparative advantage in technical capacity and resources. Given that the UN agencies’ work is clustered in six thematic areas, this paper shows how these six thematic areas contribute to various NPPs within the ANPDF.
