UNESCO and Government of Kenya in collaboration with the African Union as well as other key partners including ADEA and the SDG4 co-conveners (ILO, UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF, UNHCR, UN Women and the World Bank), is convening a Pan-African High-level Conference on Education (PACE 2018) in Nairobi from 25-27 April 2018 .
PACE 2018 aims at strengthening the partnerships in education and as such accelerate the implementation of SDG4 and Continental Education Strategy for Africa at country level. It provides an opportunity to share progress, success stories, challenges and lessons learned by Member States on the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 4, “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education, and provide lifelong learning opportunities for all” in their countries.
The conference will allow countries to deepen their understanding of some key transversal issues and enable knowledge and experiences sharing for the advancement of the education agenda. It is also expected to assist African governments and other stakeholders in ensuring that a transformative and transformed education contributes to the seven aspirations identified in Agenda 2063.
