United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
A regular report of Unesco activities is made by Amadou-Mahtar M'Bow, Director-General of UNESCO. The report is prefaced by his introduction in which he reviews the organization's crucial situation in 1974 and offers an evaluation of it. The General Conference showed evidence that member states place great hopes in UNESCO, and that strict adherence to democratic rules of order causes problems for the international organization. He points out UNESCO's problems that need to be focused on in the future, and relates urgent measures taken during the year for UNESCO's financial difficulties. Topics contained in the report are: (1) execution of UNESCO's program: education, natural sciences and their application to development, social sciences, communication, international standards, and general resolutions; (2) relations with member states and other international organizations; (3) administration; and (4) conferences, documents, and publications.
