Regional Expert Meeting on Developing Asia-Pacific Training Manual to Monitor SDG4-Education 2030

As the SDG4-Education 2030 Agenda is localized into national policies and plans across-Asia-Pacific, demand is growing among countries for support in developing and strengthening education data production systems that take into account the 10 SDG4 targets.

To this end, the UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education (UNESCO Bangkok) and UNICEF Regional Office for East Asia and the Pacific (EAPRO) will organize the Regional Expert Meeting on Developing Asia-Pacific Training Manual to Monitor SDG4-Education 2030, 11-13 October 2017 in Bangkok.

The meeting will invite key regional and national experts and officials from different agencies to discuss how to incorporate global data requirements and indicators into national indicators and data production systems. The three-day meeting will explore countries’ statistical capacity, identify issues and challenges to monitor the SDG4-Education 2030 agenda, and agree on the next steps for capacity development.

The outcome of the meeting will contribute to the development of an Asia-Pacific training manual to monitor the SDG4-Education 2030 Agenda, which aims to enhance the understanding and capacity of statisticians and monitoring officers in the area of education. The manual will cover various topics related to monitoring SDG4, including creating a national indicator framework and developing national strategies for education statistics; strengthening the administrative data production system and household surveys to generate the relevant data to monitor at national and global level; and analyzing and utilizing data and evidence to improve policy and practice in the education sector.
