Non-resident UN Entities with Programmes


The UN in Swaziland has two non-resident entities which are FAO and UNESCO. The Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) mission is to support the country in alleviating hunger and improving food security. FAO provides technical advisory services and capacity development through policy reform and infrastructure development. The FAO office is managed by an Assistant Resident Representative who reports to the Sub-regional Director in Zimbabwe. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) is also a non-resident UN entity carrying out its mandate through the National Commission for UNESCO. The National Commission for UNESCO is led by a Secretary General and reports to the Regional office in Zimbabwe.
