The Regional Coordination Group on SDG4-Education 2030 in West and Central Africa (RCG4-WCA) is organizing a regional launch event of the 2017/8 Global Education Monitoring Report.

Grounded in the evidenced-based findings of the 2017/8 GEM Report, the aim of this launch event will be to:

- Share the key issues, findings and recommendations of the 2017/8 GEM Report that are specific to countries of the WCA region with representatives of regional organisations (UN agencies, international NGOs) and other stakeholders (youth organizations, students…) and discuss different approaches to accountability, their benefits and disadvantages.
- Better understand how accountability approaches and policies in education can contribute to the overarching aims of SDG 4 and the realization of other SDGs
- Engage in regional policy dialogue to identify options and approaches that through collaboration among UN agencies, multilateral and civil society organizations can help enhance the accountability and improve the effectiveness of education systems in West and Central Africa, in particular through the Regional Coordination Group on SDG4-Education 2030
