The Asia-Pacific Cultural Centre for UNESCO (ACCU) is a non-profit organisation for Asia and the Pacific regional activities in line with the principles of UNESCO, working for the promotion of mutual understanding and cultural cooperation among peoples in the region.

ACCU was established in April 1971 in Tokyo through joint efforts of both public and private sectors in Japan. In July 1971 the resources and activities of the Tokyo Book Development Centre (TBDC), which had since its establishment in March 1969 been engaged actively in book development in Asia, were transferred to ACCU.

ACCU has since been implementing various regional cooperative programmes in the fields of culture, education and personnel exchange in close collaboration with UNESCO and its Member States in Asia and the Pacific.
