Education is the most effective way to fight poverty, improve health and well-being, generate growth and promote responsible citizenship. The Incheon Declaration has been adopted at the World Education Forum in May 2015 as a transformative vision for education over the next 15 years. The Declaration encourages countries to provide inclusive, equitable, quality education and life-long learning opportunities for all.

The UNESCO natural programs are closely related to various issues such as global warming and natural disasters that we have to deal with today. UNESCO, while conducting inter-governmental joint projects such as hydrology, oceanography and "Man and Biosphere Program (MAB)", promotes global environment conservation and preservation of biodiversity.
For the human resource development of youth who are to engage in science in the future, for instance, UNESCO provides opportunities to the students of Nigeria to participate in the training seminars conducted by the International Center for Theoretical Physics.
In 1960, UNESCO launched the international safeguarding campaign and saved the 'Nubian Monuments from Abu Simbel to Philae' that was then in danger of being submerged in the Nile River due to the construction of Aswan High Dam. Many campaigns led to the birth of international treaty called ”Convention concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage” in 1972 with the aim of protecting and preserving the cultural and natural heritage around the world through establishing an international cooperation. ”Protection of heritages which bears outstanding universal values is the duty of the international community as a whole, and thus it must be inherited to the next generation as the treasure of humanity.” Based on this belief, UNESCO identifies, registers and preserves the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. It also works on safeguarding the intangible cultural heritage including traditional performing arts, social practices and oral traditions.
