Country Readiness to Monitor SDG 4 Education Targets
This publication is part of the new UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) series – the Sustainable Development Data Digest – that examines the measurement challenges and countries’ readiness to monitor the new SDG 4 targets at the global level. The Survey results on Asia and the Pacific countries’ readiness to measure and monitor the new SDG 4 targets show that there are important data gaps, more significant for certain targets, such as 4.7 on SDG and Global Citizenship, and that countries’ capacities need to be strengthened. Challenges arise from the use of different types of data sources and from the lack of harmonised education data collection and production systems.
