UNESCO is one of Iceland's key partner organizations in supporting the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

In April 2019, Iceland signed its first partnership agreement with UNESCO with the aim of providing predictable and flexible funding through a multi-year agreement, aligned to UNESCO’s strategic orientation and reinforcing its delivery towards the SDGs and Agenda 2030.

The country has three World Heritage Sites: Vatnajökull National Park (2019), Surtsey Island (2008), and Thingvellir National Park (2004).
