Promoting access to quality, safe, and relevant education for all persons affected by crisis

SDGs and Education

In September 2015, 193 world leaders committed to 17 Global Goals for sustainable development (the SDGs) to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet by 2030.

Education is at the heart of the global development agenda and, as we had hoped, the fourth goal on education is much more ambitious than its predecessor. The global and national infrastructure supporting education in developing countries is much more sophisticated and effective today than it was even 15 years ago when the MDGs and Education For All first emerged.

Education is essential to the success of every one of the 17 new goals.

For a more indepth look at how education supports each of these goals, check out the 17 ways education influenses the new 17 global goals blog and the related slideshare.
