Paris, France, July 05, 2023 — The UNESCO IIEP (UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning) in Paris, celebrating its 60th Anniversary, has highlighted six essential areas for enhancing education to build a brighter future.

UNESCO IIEP is dedicated to this cause, providing capacity development and conducting research to support planning evolution. The organization focuses on data management and dialogue and is committed to helping countries achieve their educational goals.

Meanwhile, the G20 Education Working Group gathered from June 19 to June 22, 2023, for their fourth and final meeting in Pune, India.

The G20 documents highlight the crucial role of higher education in solving global challenges.

The UNESCO representative expressed gratitude to Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister for Education and Skill Development and Entrepreneurship of India, and all the representatives of G20 countries for their valuable contributions in creating the output documents. These documents will act as a source of inspiration and guidance for education systems globally.

Education is a powerful tool that can transform lives, promote peace, eradicate poverty, and drive sustainable development. At the forefront of this mission is UNESCO, committed to advancing the universal right to education. As the only UN institution dedicated to education, UNESCO leads the Global Education 2030 Agenda by developing educational systems worldwide and tackling contemporary global concerns.

• The UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (UNESCO IIEP) in Paris provides training, technical assistance, policy research, and information sharing to enhance educational policy, planning, and administration. Its main goal is to assist countries in managing their education systems more efficiently and help them achieve the targets of the Global Education 2030 Agenda set by global leaders.
