The Director-General Consultations with National Commissions on Draft 36 C/5
  • ENA Consultation took place in the building of ICE in London, where UNESCOís Constitution was adopted in Nov 1945

The biennial consultations with National Commissions for UNESCO on the preparation of the Draft Programme and Budget for 2012-2013 (36 C/5) have been successfully finished. This global process was undertaken through five regional meetings held from May to July 2010 in different parts of the world

The main purpose of the Consultations, in which over 170 National Commissions took part, was to solicit comments and proposals on key principles and priorities related to 36 C/5 based on a Questionnaire prepared by UNESCO.

The outcomes of the Consultations will be presented to the Executive Board at its 185th session in autumn 2010 and will help the Director-General to prepare her proposals on the Draft 36 C/5.

The Consultations with National Commissions of Arab States, Asia and the Pacific, Europe and North America, Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean took place respectively in Rabat, Morocco (10-13 May 2010), Changwon, Republic of Korea (21-23 May 2010), London, the United Kingdom (5-8 June 2010), Kampala, Uganda (15-18 June 2010) and Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago (5-7 July 2010). In Rabat and Kampala, the C/5 Consultations were combined with the Regional Conferences of Arab and African National Commissions.

For the first time, the Director-General, Mrs Irina Bokova, attended the Regional Consultations in Changwon, London and Kampala. She sent special messages to the meetings held in Rabat and Port of Spain.

The Consultations also provided good opportunity for National Commissions to discuss key issues and exchange information and experience with the UNESCO Secretariat, including its Field Offices.
