(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), which provides assistance and protection to nearly five million Palestinian refugees, and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to formally renew a sixty-four year partnership between the two agencies in support of education for Palestine refugees, UNESCO said in a statement today. The signing of the MoU recognizes the importance of this longstanding commitment and allows UNESCO and UNRWA to continue to work together.



The MOU, signed in the presence of Director-General of UNESCO Irina Bokova, and Commissioner General of UNRWA Filippo Grandi on 18 March in Amman, and of Caroline Pontefract, Director of UNRWA/UNESCO Education Department, flags up the opportunity for increased mutual cooperation as both Agencies work to develop education in the context of the 21st century, and the new demands this brings.



It further recognizes the important role UNRWA plays in being directly responsible for the teaching and learning of 500,000 Palestine Refugee students in its five fields of operation. Through this MOU, UNESCO is renewing its commitment to provide high level technical support to UNRWA's education programme.
