The objective of the present report is to summarize the state of ESD implementation in Cyprus, Greece, Malta and Turkey. This report summarizes and shares the successes and challenges highlighted within National Implementation Reports, as such a summary could be an important contribution to UNESCO, as the organization is currently facilitating dialogues to establish the direction of the new global programme for ESD. For that reason, these four countries within the regional scope of the UNESCO Regional Bureau in Venice, Italy, were chosen for the preliminary study. For the purpose of this study, the binary data contained within the National Implementation reports of Cyprus, Greece, Malta and Turkey were extracted to summarize the state of ESD implementation.
