Education is the “pillar” for all other development goals though each country is different and quantity does not guarantee quality. These were among the lessons shared by experts at the High-level discussion on education in the post-2015 development agenda hosted last month in Brussels by the Norwegian Mission to the European Union.
“Education is one of the foundations for development and Erasmus Mundus addressed the needs of developing countries in higher education. We tend to focus on basic education in our development programmes but this is not enough. We need to invest in a continuum of education and Erasmus Mundus provided this opportunity for students and for institutions to increase their capacity,” said Veronique Lorenzo, Head of Unit for Education at the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development.

Non-formal education is drawing renewed attention in development policy, notably given the high illiteracy rates among adults. Participants at last year’s European Development Days presented a variety of non-formal education projects, making the case that these are essential for development and need to be taken into account in the post-2015 agenda.
One of the many casualties of crises is education. Natural disasters, wars and protracted conflict are disrupting children’s access to schools and contributing to higher drop-out and lower completion rates. Schools can also be destroyed or taken over by military groups, and prolonged conflicts can leave them without trained teachers, resources or funding. In 2015, 80 million children and young people’s education was affected by humanitarian emergencies and protracted crises.

Despite important investments, educational outcomes in South Africa still have a long way to go. From programmes targeting early-childhood development to life-skill workshops, we discussed EU involvement in the country with Arno Schaefer, Head of Cooperation at the EU Delegation.
Education, alongside Health, forms an essential sector of EU assistance to South Sudan. With one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the world, the country bears the shocking statistic that a girl is three times more likely to die in childbirth before the age of 18 than she is to complete secondary education. Minister for Education, Joseph Ukel Abango, EU Head of Delegation to South Sudan, Sven Kühn von Burgsdorff, and Save the Children’s Country Coordinator for Alternative Education, Mark Chapple share their views on the country’s education situation and the on-going efforts to improve it.
