Policy brief: Adult Learning and Education in Asia-Pacific
Asia and the Pacific are home to one-third of the world’s population. There has been a continuous improvement in the progress of adult literacy in East Asia and Southeast Asia, where adult literacy rates were more than 96 per cent, and in Central Asia, which achieved near-universal literacy. South Asia reached 74.31per cent of the adult literacy rate in 2020, but the subregion has the lowest youth and adult literacy rates in Asia and the Pacific, remaining below the global average.
