Contribution to UNESCO's programmes ICHPEReSD, with its limited geographical extension offset by numerous projects and activities spread across the region, is a longstanding partner of UNESCO. Admitted to former Category B in 1979 and former Category A in 1984, its co-operation in promoting physical education and sport is regarded as important by the Education Sector. It recently submitted a draft revision of the UNESCO charter on physical education adopted in 1978. Nonetheless, over the past 10 years, ICHPER.SD has not responded to the Director-General’s consultations on preparing the C/5 and C/4 documents nor responded in time to preparation of the sexennial report on NGOs. For the time being, relations could be further developed on the operational plane.
