A Workshop on "Strengthening Cooperation between National Commissions for UNESCO and ISPs" was convened in Berlin, 30 January - 1 February 2006 by the German Commission for UNESCO with support from UNESCO. The workshop followed discussions at the 33rd General Conference of UNESCO, and had the aim of delivering robust recommendations for action.
The participants of the Workshop examined national case studies with a view to highlighting best practices and challenges. In doing so, they established consensus that the impact and visibility of UNESCO Science activities and in particular the ISPs at all levels (national, regional and global/inter-regional) can and must be improved.
