The Regional Forum on Education Policy is to open a space for policy debate, consultation and reflection between education policymakers of Latin American and the Caribbean countries, focusing on the policy implications of the Education 2030 Agenda and on effective strategies for its implementation in order to strengthen the capacities of UNESCO Member States in the region. The Forum is organized jointly by UNESCO IIEP Buenos Aires, together with the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in Latin America and the Carib-bean (OREALC Santiago), the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), the UNESCO Section for SDG 4 Leadership in the Division for Education 2030 Support and Coordination, and UNESCO’s Global Education Monitoring (GEM) Report.
This year, the Regional Forum on Education Policy will build on the work of the 2020 Global Education Monitoring Report Latin America and the Caribbean- Inclusion and education: All means all. Within the framework of the Forum, 8 panels and 3 workshops will be organized where the main findings of each of the chapters of the Report will be presented with the purpose of generating a space for dialogue between educational formulators and other actors in the region.
