Natural Sciences

The Natural Sciences Sector contributes to UNESCO’s mission by using science to build peace, to eradicate poverty and to promote sustainable development.

The environmental changes of our planet have an impact on the society at large as well as on individuals. UNESCO promotes programmes that contribute in the dissemination of knowledge, awareness-raising and education about issues such as climate change, water management, prevention and reduction of impacts of natural hazards as well as the understanding of ethical dilemmas, which arise from the environmental changes and the development of science.
