Adequate finance is must to ensure quality education: Education Minister

Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid urged the international communities to fulfil their commitment of financing in education to achieve the SDG-4 goals and targets within the given time. He was addressing a “High Level Ministerial Panel Discussion on SDG-4 Education 2030” on behalf of the E-9 countries. The event took place at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris during the 39th Session of the UNESCO General Conference. Mr. Nahid is the current Chairman of the E-9 forum.

Referring to ‘The Global Education monitoring Report’, Mr. Nahid added that the low and middle income countries would face an annual financing gap of US$39 billion in 2015-2030 which will consequently affect the E-9 countries. He also mentioned that the challenges for implementing SDG-4 in the E-9 countries were diverse. So, inspite of increased spending on education, the varied financing gap would also be a concern for the E-9 countries in the coming years.

The Head of the States and Governments and the Ministers of the UNESCO member states are attending the ongoing UNESCO General Conference, which is a biennial event, to finalise the programmes and budget of this organisation for next two years.

Bangladesh Education Minister is accompained by Sohorab Hossain, Secretary, Secondary and Higher Education Division; Chowdhury Mufad Ahmed, Additional Secretary, Md. Monjur Hossain, Sceretary, Bangladesh National Commission among others.
