UNESCO has 193 Members and 12 Associate Members. It is governed by the General Conference and the Executive Board. The Secretariat, headed by the Director-General, implements the decisions of these two bodies.
The Organization has 54 field offices around the world. Its headquarters are located in Paris, France.
