Developing young people’s skills for work is a must, says new UNESCO report

The UNESCO Office in Kathmandu and the Nepal National Commission for UNESCO will present today the Education for All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report 2012, “Youth and Skills – Putting education to work” at Hotel Annapurna in Kathmandu.

The tenth edition of Global Monitoring Report on EFA shows how vital it is to ensure that all young people have the skills they need to prosper. As the Report reveals, however, across the world there is a lost generation of young people who are leaving school without the skills they need. It describes how governments can give young people a better state in life so that they can greet the world of work with confidence.


The report, which serves as an authoritative reference for education policy-makers, development specialists, researchers and the media, examines how skills development programmes can be improved to boost young people’s opportunities for decent jobs and better lives.  It includes statistical indicators on all levels of education of more than 200 countries and territories.


A summary of the report will be made available at the presentation of the report.  


All together 70 participants, senior MOE officials, education officials, education experts, EFA development partners, teachers and media representatives are expected to participate in the programme.
