Education - Myanmar
UNESCO is committed to a holistic and humanistic vision of quality education in Myanmar, the realization of everyone’s right to education, and the belief that education plays a fundamental role in human, social and economic development. UNESCO is the only United Nations agency with a mandate to cover all aspects of education, and will take a lead to support Myanmar for the realization of the SDG-4 -Education 2030 Framework for Action.
