The regional launch will be hosted on the platform of Zoom.

The 2020 Report Inclusion and education: All means all, addresses inclusion in education, drawing attention to all those excluded because of gender, displacement, migration, ethnicity, language, poverty, disability or other characteristics. The Report is motivated by the explicit reference to inclusion in the 2015 Incheon Declaration, and the call to ensure an inclusive and equitable quality education in the formulation of SDG 4, the global goal for education. It reminds us that, no matter what argument may be built to the contrary, we have a moral imperative to ensure every child has a right to an appropriate education of high quality.

During the launch, key findings and policy recommendations from the 2020 GEM Report on inclusion and education will be presented. Also, with a special focus on West and Central African region, pressing issues on inclusive education and related experiences will be discussed and shared by minister(s) of education, key education stakeholders and civil society in the region.

The Global Education Monitoring Report is mandated by the international community to monitor progress in education within the framework of the Global Education 2030 Agenda. Sustainable Development Goal 4 stipulates: “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all”. SDG 4 has seven targets and three implementation mechanisms and encompasses all levels of education.
