The Role of Education to Achieve Sustainable Development
The Sustainable Development Goals succeed and expand on the Millennium Development Goals, the deadline for which is the end of 2015. By general agreement, UN countries will use the new set of goals and indicators to frame their agendas and policies over the next 15 years. One of the 17 post-2015 goals includes inclusive and equitable quality education and the promotion of lifelong learning opportunities for all.
This special WISE series, co-produced with Global Partnership for Education, highlights education’s impact on development and why the new Sustainable Development Goals must go further to ensure that all children have access to quality basic and secondary education.
