Education in the Post 2015 Development Agenda

26.12.2012

UNESCO Bangkok, Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education, in partnehip with UNICEF Regional Office for East Asia and the Pacific (EAPRO), UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia (ROSA) and VSO will organize a regional thematic consultation on "Education in the Post 2015 Development Agenda" from 28 February to 1 March 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand.

This thematic consultation co-led by UNESCO and UNICEF is part of the process to ensure that the voices of the Asia-Pacific region are included in the global process of thematic consultations around 11 themes, one of which is education.   The consultation will bring together various stakeholders from the Asia-Pacific region, including government representatives, civil society organizations, and young people and provide a platform for discussing their ideas and opinions on education in the post-2015 agenda.

It is hope that the outcomes and recommendations from this Asia-Pacific consultation will feed into the Global Thematic Consultation on Education which is planned to take place in March 2013 in Dakar, Senegal and will also be reflected in the ESCAP Regional Post-2015 Report. Ultimately, it will feed into the global UN report on the post-2015 agenda.

If you are interested in representing your government/civil society organization/youth organization to participate in this consultation, please contact Antony Tam [kh.tam(at)unesco.org] at UNESCO Bangkok, Devashish Dutta [ddutta(at)unicef.org] and Leotes Helin [lhelin(at)unicef.org] at UNICEF.

Closing date for indicating interest in participation has been extended to 1 February 2013.
