Views: 129

Parliamentarians from across the Asia-Pacific region will join forces with UNESCO to strengthen political commitment towards 'Education for All' when they meet at a conference organized by UNESCO and the Government of Indonesia in Jakarta during UN Week, from 24 to 25 October 2008.

The participants at the meeting will launch the Forum of Asia Pacific Parliamentarians for Education (FASPPED), which aims to raise awareness among parliamentarians about educational challenges in their region, highlight strategies to improve the quality of education, and associate them more closely in the planning and implementation of educational policies in the context of the Education for All (EFA) and Millennium Development Goals to achieve universal access to education.
