SDG-Education 2030 Steering Committee meeting

Established in 2016, the Steering Committee is a platform that provides a forum to ensure more coordinated support for the realization of education targets and commitments. Hosted by UNESCO, it is mandated to provide strategic guidance to Member States and the education community, make recommendations for catalytic action, advocate for adequate financing, and monitor progress toward education targets through the UNESCO Institute for Statistics and the Global Education Monitoring report.

The Steering Committee is composed of 38 members representing a majority from Member States, the World Education Forum 2015 convening agencies (UNESCO, UNDP, UNFPA, UNHCR, UNICEF, UN Women, the World Bank and ILO), the Global Partnership for Education, the OECD, regional organizations, teacher organizations, civil society networks, in addition to representatives from the private sector, foundations, youth and student organizations.

The SDG-Education 2030 Steering Committee meets to provide strategic advice on priority issues. It is supported by four working groups, which contribute technical input and recommendations in the following areas:
- Policies and strategies
- Financing of education
- Review, monitoring and reporting
- Advocacy and communication
