2016 International Assistance Review

"What We Heard"

Today, Global Affairs Canada (GAC) released their “What We Heard” report on the 2016 International Assistance Review Consultations.

Highlighted on the issues of education and skills development, participants suggested that GAC should:

  • Prioritize education to reflect Canada’s considerable expertise in education and its critical role in achieving  human rights and the 2030 Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

  • Play a key role in advancing the empowerment of girls and gender equality in and through education, including through targeted efforts to break down the barriers to participation.
