Institutes and Centres in the Natural Sciences

Category 1 Institutes

UNESCO’s Category 1 institutes, which are an integral part of UNESCO, institutes build scientific capacity in Member States, essentially in developing countries.

Category 2 Centres and Institutes

Category 2 centres and institutes contribute to the execution of UNESCO’s programme through capacity building; the exchange of information in a particular discipline; theoretical and experimental research; and advanced training. They are under the auspices of UNESCO but are not legally part of the Organization; they are associated with it through formal arrangements approved by the General Conference. These centres and institutes form a vast network of associated centres in the fields of water, renewable energy, science policy, biotechnology, geosciences, the basic sciences and remote sensing.
