Monitoring SDG 4 What's at stake?
The GEM Report has launched a blog series running up to the meeting of the Technical Cooperation Group (TCG) in Madrid next week, where indicators for measuring the new education goal in the 2030 Sustainable Agenda will be further developed. Running through each of the targets, and means of implementation for SDG 4 in turn, the blog series contains key recommendations we hope you may find useful.
The new Global Education Monitoring Report (GEM Report), which builds on the experience of the previous EFA Global Monitoring Report series, received a mandate by the Incheon Declaration and Education 2030 Framework for Action to assess the progress of education under the new 2030 Agenda.
The series introduces some of the key challenges for monitoring the new global education goal – SDG 4 – as outlined in the Monitoring Section of the latest GEM Report. The details go to the heart of what we aspire to in education for the next generation. We hope to raise awareness of the issues at stake, not only in relation to the TCG (its members and others), but also at the country level where decision makers may be discussing appropriate national (and even regional) indicators for monitoring SDG4 and its targets.
On the 25th October, please tune into our online discussion with members of the GEM Report where we will be taking questions from the public about the challenges and solutions for monitoring SDG 4.
