Across the globe, the 2030 Agenda remains the unifying tool of the international community in the construction of a prosperous, peaceful, and sustainable world for all. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are the expression of a shared global and transformative vision to change the world and improve the well-being of all peoples. UNESCO plays a transformative role in the implementation of this agenda, thanks to its education, culture, sciences and communication and information programmes.
This annual report underlines the drive and spirit of our team in promoting innovation to uphold the 2030 and 2063 Agendas. It is a resounding testament to the unwavering forts of our team in 2017, and the depth of their commitment to advance the ideals and objectives of UNESCO.
