Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4)

UNESCO, through its regular budget supported translation of the SDG4 Framework of Action or Education 2030 document from English into two local languages namely Dari and Pashto. Funded through UNESCO, MoE organized national and sub-national events in 2017 and officially launched both the SDG4 and the new National Education Strategic Plan (NESP III), 2017-2021. More than 200 MoE staff and development partners attended these events. SDG4 Framework for Action as a guiding document to 2030 is now available in local languages and will serve as a good resource to all those involved in education.

Further, UNESCO as the global lead for SDG4 and the Education 2030 Agenda, has developed a specific package of support for Afghanistan with the Ministry of Education, oriented to SDG4, for rollout in 2017/18.
