Education, the SDGs and development strategies
Austrian launch of the GEM 2016 and Panel Discussion
Sustainable Development Goal Four refers to education as a universal right. To attain this goal, education has to be inclusive and of high quality. Which challenges follow on from this demanding objective for developing and developed countries alike? Looking at the broader picture, which role does education play as part of the global development agenda? How does it contribute to the development goals defined in the SDGs? And how are development strategies in the education sector and beyond shaped by this agenda?
These questions are at the heart of the Global Education Monitoring Report 2016. The report is the first in the new series in continuation of the Education for All Global Monitoring Reports published by UNESCO. Its mandate is to monitor progress towards the education targets in the new SDGs framework.
This year, the GEM focuses on the complex relations between education and key development sectors.
