While the world has seen tremendous progress in reducing poverty and in economic development over the last decade, there are still millions of disadvantaged people left behind. Inclusion means placing poor and marginalised groups at the centre of development. It focuses on economic, social, and environmental factors that hinder the poorest from participating in the development process. Education can play a key role in contributing to inclusive development.

This session aims to discuss the role of capacity building programmes in improving the ability, opportunity and dignity of groups that are at a disadvantage because of their gender, identity or social standing.

Join our panel of speakers as they explore inclusive development strategies in education, discuss challenges and opportunities and showcase examples of best practices.
