Regional preparatory meeting for the West Asia region

Doha, Qatar
09 December, 2010

In the Arab region, many girls and women remain excluded from learning opportunities and only nine of the twenty two Arab States have achieved gender parity in primary education. For groups most at risk of suffering from inequalities, disparities and multiple combined forms of exclusion, lack of access to education and the poor quality of the education received, remain major challenges. The underlying causes of educational marginalization are diverse and often interlinked with inequalities and marginalization in other sectors.

The ECOSOC meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss innovative approaches and policy responses that have worked to address these multiple barriers. The meeting, which will be held in conjunction with the World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), will include a ministerial working lunch to identify policy options and key messages from the region to be brought to the July 2011 ECOSOC AMR for the action of Ministers.
