    National Commissions :
    a strategic win-win partnership

    As a strategic partner, National Commissions plays a key role in the process of reflection and are at the core of ICESCO’s action

    Designed to be global and open to all of the world, ICESCO's new strategic vision has prompted us to redefine our priorities and review our working methods and tools. Accordingly, the win-win partnership we are building everyday with our National Commissions hinges on three fundamental values: knowledge sharing, continuous innovation and co-creation of added value.

    The guiding principles of our action consists mainly of closely following up the evolution of the sectors of education, science and culture at the regional and international levels; constantly lending ear to our Member States to cater for their needs and expectations; bringing them the benefit from our expertise network to help them properly implement their domestic strategies and plans; and building their capacities to overcome development-specific challenges. Actually, we formulate these principles with National Commissions in order to establish a more inclusive, more resilient, more sustainable and smarter Islamic World.
