UNESCO-SEAMEO Asia-Pacific Regional Seminar on Subregional Cooperation for Achieving SDG 4 (Education 2030), 29-31 May, Bangkok, Thailand
The uniqueness of the SDG4-Education 2030 lies in its flexibility and adaptability at regional, sub-regional and country levels. While this a welcome move to ensure greater national ownership and relevance, the challenge lies in coordinating the national efforts to ensure maximum synergy and consistency at all levels (subregional, regional and global levels). The sub-regional intergovernmental bodies and cooperation platforms therefore are in a unique position to bridge this regional and global commitments to national actions.
This seminar aims at capacitating senior officials of the subregional organizations to gain more knowledge and understanding of the roles of the subregional organizations in bridging regional and subregional commitments on SDG4-Education 2030. This activity is part of UNESCO-Malaysia Funds-in-Trust Project on “Strengthening National Capacity for Sector Wide Planning to Achieve SDG4 in Asia-Pacific Through South-South Cooperation”.
