What is UNESCO? Our Work in Asia-Pacific: UNESCO Bangkok Office
Since 1961, UNESCO Bangkok has had a dual role as both the Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education and a Cluster Office.
As the Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education, UNESCO Bangkok provides technical expertise and assistance while serving advisory, knowledge-production and sharing, and monitoring and evaluation functions to assist Asia-Pacific Member States and other UNESCO field offices in the area of Education.
As a Cluster Office, UNESCO Bangkok helps implement UNESCO programmes in Education, Sciences, Culture, and Communication and Information in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam, and in cooperation with other UNESCO offices.
UNESCO Bangkok has an Antenna Office in Yangon, Myanmar, to develop and implement Education, Communications and Information, and Culture programmes in the country.
UNESCO Bangkok also hosts the Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific of the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) to help Member States to produce quality statistical data in the areas of the UNESCO mandate.
