The International Implementation Scheme (IIS) of the United Nations Decade for Sustainable Development (2005-2014) was prepared by UNESCO, as a lead agency for the Decade, in cooperation with a number of relevant Organisations throughout the world. The IIS sets out a broad framework for all partners to contribute to the Decade. It is not prescriptive, but provides overall guidance and shows why, how, when and where the enormous range of partners can develop their contributions based on their particular contexts. It briefly presents the ESD challenge and outlines the kind of education that, collectively, partners consider essential in order to facilitate sustainable development. It addresses the wide range of stakeholders in the Decade and outlines seven key strategies. For more information please visit: http://portal.unesco.org/education
