Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4)

“Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”

The UN Sustainable Development Goal for education (SDG 4) reflect the important role of education by encapsulating targets in a stand-alone goal (Goal 4).  

Education is also included in goals on health, growth and employment, sustainable consumption and production, and climate change. The Incheon Declaration, which constitutes the commitment of the education community to Education 2030, entrusts UNESCO to lead, coordinate and be the focal point for education within the overall SDG coordination. 

The agenda Education 2030 is part of the 17 SDGs that make up the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development. The success of the SDGs is driven by the education goal. The SDGs and targets aim to stimulate action over the next fifteen years in the Five Ps of critical importance:

 

  • People,
  • Planet,
  • Prosperity,
  • Peace and
  • Partnership.  

The Education 2030 Framework for Action outlines how to translate into practice the commitments made at Incheon at country, regional and global level and provides guidance for implementing Education 2030.
