MESSAGE FROM Director and Representative, UNESCO Office, Jakarta UNESCO Office, Jakarta is pleased to present the second edition of PhilippinesUNESCO Country Programming Document 2014-2017 (PH-UCPD-2). The PH-UCPD is our organization’s blueprint of action in working with the Philippine government and other stakeholders, such as civil society and the private sector, in the pursuit of the national development goals and objectives along UNESCO’s areas of competence – education, natural and human sciences, culture, and communication and information. The PHUCPD will also be useful in defining UNESCO’s role within the joint UN Programme in the country (United Nations Development Assistance Framework/UNDAF). UNESCO has been supporting programmes in the Philippines for more than 60 years now. With the PH-UCPD, UNESCO will be working with a development framework that will facilitate a coordinated and systematic partnership with development stakeholders. A consultative process was adopted in the preparation of the document. This ensured that the proposed programme is demand driven and enjoys the support of Government and other stakeholders. Consistent with UNESCO’s philosophy, the UCPD highlights sectoral, intersectoral and interdisciplinary perspectives. The PH-UCPD development benefited from a new UN Development Assistance Framework (2012-2018). The programmes and projects included in the PH-UCPD are consistent with the Philippines’ commitments to the UN Millennium Development Goals and to other internationally-agreed development priorities, and with national development goals of the Philippines. Pursuing the PH-UCPD 2014-2017 will be challenging, considering that UNESCO is a non-resident UN agency in the Philippines. Nevertheless, UNESCO is committed to develop strong partnerships, and work closely with the Philippines National Commission for UNESCO, in order to ensure effective implementation of the programme. It will draw support from the wider UNESCO family – national committees of intergovernmental programmes, UNESCO centers and institutes worldwide, and UNESCO associated schools and clubs. UNESCO is grateful to the Philippine Government and key development partners from civil society organizations, the private sector, academia, professional associations,
