Expert Group Meeting to review the two draft reports of the Secretary-General for the 2011 high-level segment of ECOSOC on the theme of education is planned for 18 March in New York
The first Secretary-General’s report, for the Annual Ministerial Review, will examine progress made in the implementation of the education-related goals and put forward policy recommendations for their acceleration.
The second report of the Secretary-General, for the thematic discussion, will provide an in-depth analysis of the impact of current global and national trends on education.
The discussions will focus on the key findings and recommendations of the two draft reports. The expectation is that the diverse group of experts, including some members of the Committee on Development Policy (CDP), will highlight how policies in other sectors are impacting education outcomes.
The Expert Group Meeting will draw on the valuable recent work of the CDP on the impact of the multiple crises on development.
