Since its founding, UNESCO has sought to collaborate with NGOs, which are fundamental civil society partners for the implementation of the Organization’s activities and programmes. Over the years, UNESCO has built up a valuable network of cooperation with NGOs having an expertise in its fields of competence, i.e. education, science, social and human sciences, culture, communication and information.
INQAAHE is among the 373 international NGOs in official partnership with UNESCO.
In addition to this formal framework, the Organization has also been carrying out a range of activities hand in hand with non-governmental partners, not only at international and regional levels, but also at national level.
