Mid-Term Review of SDG-4

Pakistan, in collaboration with UNESCO, successfully conducted a Mid-Term Review (MTR) of the Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG-4) targets at the National and Provincial levels. The MTR aimed to assess the progress made towards SDG-4 indicators since 2015 and provided a solid foundation for learning recovery and the transformation of education systems in the country.

The comprehensive review, organized by the Pakistan Institute of Education (PIE) in partnership with the Taaleem Foundation, involved seven provincial and regional consultative workshops. These workshops brought together key stakeholders to evaluate the advancements and challenges in achieving SDG-4 targets within each region.

Following the completion of the provincial and regional workshops, a one-day National workshop on the SDG-4 mid-term review report was convened on January 11, 2024, at the PIE Auditorium. The purpose of this national gathering was to incorporate recommendations and feedback gathered from the various regions into the final MTR report.

Dignitaries from Provincial/Area Education Management Information System (EMIS) departments, Ministry of Federal Education & Professional Training, Ministry of Planning, Federal Directorate of Education, Board of Education Curriculum and Standards (BECS), National Education Foundation (NEF), Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Authority (PEIRA), Directorate General of Regional Education (DGRE), Pakistan Bureau of Statistics, UNESCO, World Bank, Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Institute for Social and Policy Studies (SDPI), and Taaleem Foundation were present at the event.

The workshop also saw the virtual participation of Statistical Advisors Mr. Shailendra Sigdel and Program Specialist Mr. Nyi Nyi Thaung from the UNESCO Institute of Statistics (UIS), who provided valuable insights through an online link.

During the event, Dr. Shahid Soroya, the Director General of PIE, expressed gratitude to all participants for their valuable contributions and emphasized the significance of collaborative efforts in shaping the future of education in Pakistan. The MTR report, once finalized, is expected to highlight best practices, derive meaningful insights, and outline prospects for the future of education in the country.
