Flanders has enjoyed unique ties with UNESCO for many years. This UN organisation is competent for Education, Sciences, Culture and Communication. Given the Flemish autonomy in these fields, it is logical that UNESCO is one of the priority international organisations for our region. As a result, Flanders and this UN organisation concluded a cooperation agreement in 1998.
This cooperation agreement aims at a real partnership between both parties. UNESCO can count on Flemish expertise, financial means, networks and ideas, whereas the Flemish authorities can call on UNESCO’s advice and know-how.
