About the group

Welcome to the Group on Education and Development!  Education policy is increasingly being seen as one of the most important issues in the development policy discussion and debate. Evidence shows that it constitutes an effective response to poverty and vulnerability. It must be considered in any immediate response to a crisis, and is a vital component of longer term economic and social development strategies. This group is coordinated by the education sector in INTPA G3 and aims to bring together those involved in education and development, including Commission staff in Delegations and Headquarters, and anyone else with an interest in the field. It intends to be an interactive site for accessing information and exchanging ideas, so please take a look around and get involved!
