The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) continued in 2001 to promote cooperation in education, science, culture and communication among its member States. The General Conference convened its thirty-first session (Paris, 15 October–3 November), at which it adopted the organization's 2002-2003 programme budget and 2002-2007 medium-term strategy. The 58-member Executive Board held its one hundred and sixty-first (28 May–13 June), one hundred and sixty-second (2-12 October) and one hundred and sixty-third (5-6 November) sessions, all in Paris. The Bureau of Field Coordination launched the first phase of a streamlining exercise to enhance programme delivery and cost-effectiveness of the organization's network of field offices. It created 27 cluster offices to serve groups of member States and closed 18 national offices. UNESCO membership remained at 188 in 2001.
