National SDG4 Benchmarks: A Formative Tool for Progress Towards 2030
Dear GCE Member,
You are invited to the National SDG4 Benchmarks: A Formative Tool for Progress Towards 2030 webinar co-hosted by the Global Education Monitoring (GEM) and Global Campaign for Education (GCE).
The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) and the Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report have been working with countries to set national SDG 4 benchmarks for 2025 and 2030 on seven indicators, based on their past trends and education sector plans. By mid-2022, over 90% of countries had directly or indirectly taken part in setting these benchmarks. The analysis has shown that even if countries reach these benchmarks by 2030, the world will still fall short of the ambition expressed in SDG 4, before even accounting for the potential impact of COVID-19 on education systems. Yet, countries appear to be committing to accelerate progress beyond what they managed to achieve over 2000–15.
This webinar will show how the national SDG 4 benchmark mechanism can also be used to set national targets and monitor commitments made at the Transforming Education Summit (TES), sitting at the heart of its accountability mechanism.
The details of the webinar are as follows:
Date: 23 February 2023
