ZAMBIA NATIONAL COMMISSION FOR UNESCO

O

ne of the key challenges UNESCO faces is ensuring visibility in

whatever programmes and activities it is undertaking. In view of this and

taking cognizance of the Communication Strategy of the Zambia National

Commission for UNESCO, this report aims at enlightening people on the

activities that UNESCO is implementing in Zambia. The report is therefore

a product of the collaborations of the Zambia National Commission for

UNESCOwith its stakeholders such as the government ministries, specialized

agencies in the UNESCO five areas of competence as well as individual

contributions.

In the education sector, the report highlights some activities being

done such as the implementation of the UNESCO supported youth and

adult literacy education in Zambia; getting to know SDG 4; capacity devel-

opment for education (CapEd): improving education quality through

teachers in Zambia; and understanding the 1960 convention against

discrimination in education.

In the Science sector, it looks at Science for peace and development

2017 celebrations; the potential use of

moringa olifera

seed powder as a

coagulant in the purification of water from unprotected sources in rural

and peri-urban areas of Zambia; the science and technology female

postgraduate scholarship. In the Social and Human Science, it looks at

the fight against doping in sports in Zambia.

Under the Culture sector, it looks at the works of the Lusaka National

museum with children and the arts taking centre stage; understanding

intangible cultural heritage in relation to sustainable development in

Zambia; proverbs, a varnishing heritage, and the inventorying of the

Lozi and Nkoya people of Western Zambia.

Under the Communication and Information sector, it looks at media’s

role in empowering critical minds to advance peaceful, just and inclusive

societies; libraries as cornerstones of inclusive knowledge societies; Zambia

wins the 2017 #ipdctalkssa competition for undergraduate journalism

schools; and Zambia prides of its successes during the 39

th

session of

UNESCO general conference in Paris.

It is my sincere hope that you will find the magazine useful. My

office remains committed to engaging stakeholders to explore how we

can partner to enhance and promote UNESCO values.
