The 58-member Executive Board focuses on the development of policies and programmes to direct Unesco's activities.
Jamaica's membership of the Executive Board is for the period 2017-2021.
In making Jamaica's campaign pitch, Minister Grange said:
"Jamaica stands ready as a member of the [Executive] Board to assiduously fulfil this mandate and contribute to strengthening the work of Unesco.
"It is our view that Unesco carries a heavy burden of responsibility to assist in tackling various global economic and political crises and in finding solutions that will promote sustainable development for all."
