The Network on Education Quality Monitoring in the Asia-Pacific (NEQMAP) is a regional platform established by the UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education (UNESCO Bangkok) in March 2013. NEQMAP aims to improve the quality of learning in the Asia-Pacific by enhancing the use of student learning assessment to strengthen education systems. The network supports countries in the region through capacity development, research and knowledge sharing activities.
