The mission of the Education Policy and Reform (EPR) Unit is to promote policies and strategies that will improve education systems in countries of the Asia-Pacific region. In so doing, EPR works enhance the sector-wide coherence of education policy design with an explicit focus on cross-cutting issues such as improving the quality and relevance of learning and reaching marginalized populations.

EPR remains charged with UNESCO’s regional coordination and support in sector-wide policy analysis, management and finance issues, while upholding the Organization’s focus on quality learning and relevance in education, including in the areas that constitute the crossroads of learning (secondary education) and the crossroads of life (skills development through formal TVET).
