5th Asia-Pacific Meeting on Education 2030 (APMED): Delivering Inclusive and Equitable Quality Education in the Era of Lifelong Learning and Sustainable Development


5th Asia-Pacific Meeting on Education 2030 (APMED2030) will specifically focus on Target 4.1 (ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and effective learning outcomes) and Target 4.6 (ensure that all youth and a substantial proportion of adults, both men and women, achieve literacy and numeracy) and explore progress and challenges towards implementing and monitoring foundational learning and skills for all age groups.
