The final report of the UNESCO Education Policy Review for Mongolia will be officially launched in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Mr. Tapan Mishra, UNRC in Mongolia, will formally present on behalf of UNESCO, both the English and Mongolian volumes of the Report to Ms. Tsedevsuren Lkhagva, Mongolia Minister of Education and Science. The international Development Partners in Mongolia, the policy section of UNESCO HQ, UN Agencies, and education institutional stakeholders are expected to attend the launch of the Report.
In 2018, the Ministry of Education and Science (MoES) officially requested UNESCO to conduct a comprehensive Review of the education sector challenges and to use the key policy recommendations to reform and restructure the education system that is equitable, inclusive, quality and lifelong learning.
In close partnership with MoES, UNESCO supported Mongolia in conducting the Education Policy Review from 2018-2019. The Education Policy Review took a comprehensive, lifelong learning approach and involved in-depth work and studies on specific policy domains and issues, benefitting from national, regional and international evidence and experience. UNESCO closely collaborated with MoES, education stakeholders, Mongolia Institute for Education Research (MIER), UNESCO IIEP, UNICEF Country Office in Mongolia, ADB, World Bank, JICA, and other Development Partners to provide invaluable inputs to the Education Policy Review Team.
The Education Policy Review was a critical analysis of the Education Sector and an in-depth assessment of the policies and programmes aligned with the development aspirations of the Mongolian Government within the framework of the Education 2050 vision and sustainable development strategy of Mongolia and Mongolia Education Medium Term Development Plan (ESMTDP) 2021-2030.
Consistent with SDG4-Education 2030, this Report adopts a lifelong learning as a guiding principle and it takes a comprehensive, system-wide, approach to education. Both are reflected in the structuring of this Report according to the three thematic priorities. This Report combines national and international knowledge and expertise, and takes into consideration relevant research and analysis, reports, statistics, and discussions with a wide range of stakeholders and development partners during a series of field visits.
The report is produced in English and Mongolian language and can be directly accessed on-line on the UNESCO website.
