Incheon Declaration and Framework for Action

On 4 November 2015 in Paris, the international education community adopted the Education 2030 Framework for Action, the foundation that will anchor global efforts to achieve Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4). This marked the end of a crucial process that included national, regional, and global consultations, leading to the commitment made in May 2015 at the World Education Forum in Incheon to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” (Incheon Declaration). This document includes the full texts of both the Incheon Declaration and the Framework for Action for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 4.
