The following three supplementary strategies underpin the delivery of the three strategic priorities.
- International Engagement
- Managing Stakeholder Relationships
Supplementary Strategy 1: International Engagement
The National Commission will continue to manage New Zealand’s relationship with the international organisation in consultation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade through New Zealand’s Permanent Delegate to UNESCO based at the New Zealand Embassy in Paris. In the 2010-2011 biennium the focus will be on influencing the content of UNESCO’s programme and budget for 2012-2013 (the 36C/5) in line with the interests of New Zealand and the Pacific sub-region through the consultation process culminating in the adoption of this document at the UNESCO General Conference in October 2011.
Supplementary Strategy 2: Managing Stakeholder Relationships
The National Commission will engage with a range of stakeholders on UNESCO matters in consultation with relevant Ministers. The Commission will engage with government departments it is associated with it under its constitution through inter alia engagement in the work of its sub-commissions. Co-operating bodies will be kept informed of developments and provided with opportunities to engage in the Commission’s work. The Youth Bureau will be revitalised. Existing formal partnerships will be continued and enhanced where appropriate and new partnerships will be explored.
Supplementary Strategy 3: Communications
The National Commission will seek to maximise the visibility of its activities with the aim of promoting UNESCO’s key messages. Principal mechanisms will be the Commission’s website, regular electronic newsletters and the on-line publication of an annual review document. Media releases will be issued and strategies developed for major events in the Commission’s calendar.
