PDF File Size: 2.27 MB | Download   
Education for all has always been an integral part of the sustainable development agenda. The World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) in 2002 adopted the Johannesburg Plan of Implementation (JPOI) which in its Section X, of reaffirmed both the Millennium Development Goal 2 in achieving universal primary education by 2015 and the goal of the Dakar Framework for Action on Education for All to eliminate gender disparity in primary and secondary education by 2005, and at all levels of education by 2015. The JPOI
addressed the need to integrate sustainable development into formal education at all levels, as well as through informal and non-formal education opportunities. There is growing international recognition of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) as an integral element of quality education and a key enabler for sustainable development. Both the Muscat Agreement adopted at the Global Education for All Meeting (GEM) in 2014 and the newly adopted post-2015 development agenda – Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with a set of 17 for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at its core - include references to ESD.Although education is a dedicated sustainable development goal 4 - "Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote life- long learning opportunities for all" – with a set of associated targets, it is also a key driver for achieving many of the other sustainable development goals.
