Regional Consultation Meetings

In view of the III ForumBIE 2030, and in accordance to the mandate it received in the International Call for Balanced and Inclusive Education (ICBIE), the Education Relief Foundation (ERF) is organising a series of Regional Technical Consultation Meetings on the text of the Universal Declaration on Balanced and Inclusive Education (UDBIE).

The Regional Technical Consultation Meetings will be held between October and November 2019, in cooperation with ERF’s regional governmental and intergovernmental partners. All registered participants of the III ForumBIE 2030 will receive letters inviting them to appoint technical representatives to the relevant regional meeting. Each regional session, for the sake of technical efficiency, will count no more than 50 participants per session of parallel consultations and will be held over a period of 2 days.

The Regional Technical Consultation Meetings have as their objective to present the text of the UDBIE and collate potential amendments proposed by the technical representatives of the III ForumBIE 2030’s participants. The proposed amendments, upon consensus, will then be incorporated by ERF’s international Drafting Committee into the text of the UDBIE, in anticipation of its formalisation and adoption by the stakeholders at the signing ceremony in January 2020.
