Abstract:  For UNESCO, education is a priority because it is a human right and a force for development progress. Education saves lives, delivers hope, builds dignity, prevents extremism, brings about social inclusion and fosters social mobility.

The international community has entrusted UNESCO to lead the
coordination and monitoring of the Education 2030 Agenda. UNESCO is the only UN agency to cover all aspects of education and has a worldwide network of specialized institutes and offices. The Organization was instrumental in mobilizing for the Education 2030 Incheon Declaration and Framework for Action, which is the roadmap for Sustainable Development Goal 4, aiming to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learningopportunities for all”.

Education is also key to achieving all the 17 sustainable development goals. While the main responsibility for implementing the Education 2030 Agenda lies with governments, UNESCO provides support through coordinated policy advice, technical assistance, capacity development and monitoring of progress at global, regional and national levels.
