History
Philosophy and Origin of the United Nations Collaboration for Economic and Social Development of Africa - UNCESDA Since we advance the Twenty first Century, a number of major challenges face by citizens around the world as they interrelate with one another as individuals, groups, and with nature. Globalization of education, trade and of communications has created a very consistent world. So far the terrific gaps between the rich and the poor continue to broaden both within, and between nations. Sustainable development remains an intangible long-term goal, too often sacrificed for short-term gains. It is imperative that higher education offer solutions to existing problems and innovate to avoid problems in the future. Whether in the economic, political, or social realms, higher education is expected to contribute to raising the overall quality of life, worldwide. To fulfill its role effectively and maintain excellence, higher education must become far more internationalized; it must integrate an international and intercultural dimension into its teaching, research, and service functions. Education is the largest single activity in the world, involving over 1000 million students and 50 million teachers at all levels, not counting millions of others in educational support activities. But its importance stems not merely from its size but also from its role as institutionalized knowledge - the principal repository, producer, disseminator and transmission belt of all forms of knowledge Given the magnitude of the problems at stake and the need to address about the place of developing countries in education and international trade led many of these countries to call for the establishment of a full-fledged organization specifically devoted to tackling these problems and identifying appropriate international actions on educational development besides strengthening the economic cooperation among the intergovernmental bodies and member countries for implementing educational programmes having social, cultural, technical, economic and positive contents for the optimum development.
