Unicef, Libya sign deal to improve education
New York, June 26, 2013
The United Nations Children's Fund (Unicef) and the Libyan Government have signed an agreement that aims to improve the basic education system in the country.
The agreement was signed by Unicef’s country director Carel del Rooy and the Minister of Education, Ali Abed, in Tripoli.
The initiative will cover the development of an education management information system, validation of early learning development standards, and the promotion of early childhood care, said a statement.
It will also support teachers' training, risk education and the establishment of inclusive education mechanisms in schools, it said.
“Quality education for all is fundamental for a peaceful, democratic and productive society, and Unicef commends the Ministry of Education for tangible achieved results,” said Carel de Rooy, the agency's Libya country director.
“We are very pleased to respond to the needs and requests of the Libyan Government and sign this work plan so that this joint plan can be operationalised in the best interest of children and adolescents in Libya,” he said.
The agreement is a continuation of the initial humanitarian response in 2011, and the 2012 work plan signed for sustainable development cooperation between the Ministry of Education and UNICEF, he added. – TradeArabia News Service
