The recommendations in UNESCO’s report of July 2019: Meeting commitments: are countries on track to achieve SDG 4 align well with DFID’s education policy: Get Children Learning and the work the UK is supporting in such areas as learning measurement, education financing, research and policy dialogue. We welcome UNESCO’s report and look forward to hearing more about suggestions for a Global Plan of Action for Education.
