A way forward to mainstreaming equity-oriented programming and data analysis


Work Streams


Building a stronger knowledge and evidence base on root causes and effective solutions for improving equality in educational participation and learning.

Tackling known data gaps and under-researched equity issues and dimensions: e.g. “Invisible” populations, such as children with disabilities, migrant children and children living in pastoral and remote communities.


Shining a light on the connections between education inequality and fragility, and examining effective solutions related to learning and retention for these populations.

Examining the effects of policy and program responses to identify and promote promising, equity-oriented pedagogical, resourcing and financing solutions.

The Equity Initiative is an essential bridge between the global architecture of the sustainable development goals and the many practitioners working on the ground to make those goals a reality.
