The Global Education Monitoring Report (or GEM Report) is an editorially independent, authoritative, and evidence-based annual report that monitors progress in education in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which have been adopted as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Report is funded by a group of governments, multilateral agencies and foundations and published annually by UNESCO to serve the international community. It is widely recognized as an indispensable advocacy and technical tool supporting the achievement of SDG 4, which aims to ensure “inclusive and equitable quality education” and promote “lifelong learning for all” by 2030. With its renewed mandate, established in the Incheon Declaration of the World Education Forum in May 2015, the GEM Report series identifies effective education policies and analyses major education related themes.
In addition to the Global report, a series of outputs serve the GEM Report’s objectives, including:
The GEM Report has a recurring need for consultants to ensure research for the themes analysed in its global, regional and gender reports and for the PEER country profiles, maintain a consistent high quality in terms of accuracy, relevance, timeliness, and novelty. Under the supervision and guidance of the Senior Policy Analyst (Thematic Lead), the consultant will be asked to contribute to the preparation of different outputs as specified here below.
