    Contribution to UNESCO's programmes This organization, whose reach is very limited and almost entirely centred in Europe, has not co-operated very regularly with UNESCO in recent years. Nevertheless, the few activities in which UNESCO has been involved have been of interest to the Organization. On this basis, the relations that have been established should be pursued.
