The director of UNESCO-ICQHS participated in the 22nd Session of the UNESCO-IHP Intergovernmental Council at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris from 13 to 17 June 2016, and reported on the activities of the center. During this session, the Council principally examined recent institutional developments in light of the relevant outcomes of the 38th session of the General Conference, including the Programme and Budget for 2016-2017 (38 C/5), particularly as these relate to the implementation of the Eighth Phase of IHP (IHP-VIII, 2014-2021).
