The 2016 Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report, Education for people and planet: Creating sustainable futures for all, UNESCO, is due to be launched next Tuesday, the 6th of September.
Multiple events are planned in over 50 countries around the world to present and debate the Report’s findings and recommendations. All are invited to attend, and can find an invitation about the events’ location, and logistics via the GEM Report website.
The GEM Report, which builds on the experience of the previous EFA Global Monitoring Report (GMR) series, received a new mandate from the international education community to assess the progress of education under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The 2016 Report, the first of a new 15-year series, begins by highlighting the ways that education can serve as a catalyst for the overall sustainable development agenda. It presents compelling arguments and substantive evidence for the types of education that are vital for achieving the goals of poverty reduction, hunger eradication, improved health, gender equality and empowerment, sustainable agriculture, resilient cities and more equal, inclusive and just societies.
The second half of the Report responds to its official mandate, tackling the many challenges concerning ways of assessing progress towards the fourth Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 4), including concrete recommendations for policy change at the national, regional and global level. Each of the seven education targets and three means of implementation in SDG 4 are examined in turn. In addition, education finance and education systems are analysed, as is the extent to which education can be monitored in the other SDG goals.
