Also, participants discussed building stability and peace in the world, creating a multiplicity of human cultures, maintaining diversity, and solving future financial issues.

The delegates reviewed the activities carried out by UNESCO in the last two years and discussed plans for promoting research and academic works to the world in the coming years.

IISNC, which works under the auspices of UNESCO, is a Mongolia-based UNESCO Institute established in 1998 by the initiative of UNESCO Secretary-General Federico Mayor and by a multilateral agreement between the governments of Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, and Turkey. It is an international organization with second-class status. Since 1999, countries with a tradition of nomadic culture have been studying the life of their people from the state-society, state, and economy-culture aspects and produced numerous substantial studies and works.
