UNESCO's Beijing Office fosters the advancement, transfer and sharing of scientific knowledge and encourages nations in its cluster to gain a better understanding of the complex relationship between human activities and the environment.

Priority is given to developing human and institutional resources through training, information dissemination, joint research, networking and technology transfer. An area of particular emphasis is the training of young scientists.
From improving lives through the latest engineering advances to protecting people from the floods of the Yangtze River, science holds potential solutions to many pressing problems.
