Description

Unesco is leading global efforts to achieve the EFA goals and education-related MDG:s by promoting literacy and quality education for all throughout life, with a particular emphasis on gender equality, youth and reaching society's most vulnerable and marginalized groups. Special attention is placed on Africa and the least developed countries. Education is the most important MDG promoting peace, understanding and dialogue between cultures and peoples. IPDC works to improve the resources of independent and pluralistic media in developing countries. UIS is the official data source for the education-related targets of the MDG:s and EFA. The UIS also provides training and technical assistance to improve data quality and to develop new methodologies.
