Germany and UNESCO sign to support the Global Education Monitoring Report
The Assistant Director-General for Education, Qian Tang and Stefan Krawielicki, Ambassador, Permanent Delegate of Germany to UNESCO, signed an agreement on 16 September to provide funding for the Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report in 2017.
The government of Germany is one of the longest standing bilateral donors to the GEM Report (formerly the Education for All Global Monitoring Report). This supplementary arrangement bears witness to the support and interest of the Government of Germany to the work of the GEM Report, and its continuing backing since 2003.
The contribution will support the research and production of the 2017 Global Education Monitoring Report, which will examine the important issue of accountability in education.
The GEM Report team recently released its 2016 Report entitled: Education for people and planet: Creating sustainable futures for all. The Report shows the potential for education to propel progress towards all global goals outlined in the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs). It also shows that education needs a major transformation to fulfil that potential and meet the current challenges facing humanity and the planet.
The GEM Report is an editorially independent, authoritative and evidence-based annual report published by UNESCO. Its mandate, drawn from the Education 2030 Framework for Action, is to monitor progress towards the education targets in the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework.
