UNESCO NATIONAL COMMISSION OF THE UNITED REPUBLIC OF TANZANIA

E

steemed readers,

I am profoundly honoured and exceedingly humbled to have the opportunity to welcome you all

to the 15

th

edition of Tanzania-UNESCOMagazine. This is an annual publication that provides highlights

on the activities that UNESCO National Commission in collaboration with other key stakeholders has

done in the period under the review. The Magazine therefore provides an opportunity for UNESCO stake-

holders and other development partners in the country to receive informative and feedback report on

the extent to which UNESCO National Commission has been performing in a twelve-month period.

The year 2017 was marked by UNESCO 39

th

General conference which took place in UNESCO

Headquarters in Paris in which Tanzania was well represented in all five key areas of competencies of

UNESCO. The General conference was a platform for Tanzania in collaboration with other member

states to sharpen UNESCO’s role and enhance its impact and delivery capacity. It is in this spirit that I

sincerely thank all those who contributed in one way or another to the participation of the country in

that conference. It is my hope that inputs made from Tanzania at the conference will contribute towards

improving the way in which the organization’s activities affect the member states.

Tanzania has been benefitting from UNESCO Programs and activities through the support of key

stakeholders and development partners who are spearheading promotion of UNESCO activities in

Tanzania. I strongly believe that it is through this support and collaboration that the National Commission

was able to effectively execute its duties. On that ground, I would like to thank all our stakeholders for

taking part in ensuring that Tanzania benefits from UNESCO’s activities.

I would also wish to extend my appreciation to governmental and non-governmental organizations

and individuals who represented Tanzania in different meetings, seminars, workshops and forums that

were held at various levels both locally and internationally. It is my hope that you will all be of helping

hand in continuing to support the National Commission in executing and disseminating UNESCO

programs and activities in Tanzania. In similar manner I also thank the United Nations Development

Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Population

Fund (UNFPA) and other international agencies for their participation in the planning and execution

of activities in line with UNESCO’s areas of competencies.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge the support and collaboration that UNESCONational Commission

received from the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania through the Ministry of Education

Science and Technology. It was through the Ministry that we were able to undertake and coordinate

different activities that are in line with UNESCO’s areas of competencies. On behalf of the whole team of

UNESCO National Commission I would like to assure the government that the National Commission

for UNESCOwill continue to work with different stakeholders in promoting UNESCO ideals in the country

and in safeguarding public interest at UNESCO.

Acknowledgement
