UNESCO and SADC have a long standing history that culminated in the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in 1996. In 2017, UNESCO and SADC developed a Joint Programme of Action (JPA) which identifies concrete area of cooperation. These include education; technical and vocational education and training (TVET); youth; HIV and health education; science, technology and innovation (STI); water security, renewable energy and disaster risk management; culture; communication and information (including media for SDGs); and data for development.

The purpose of this magazine is to highlight UNESCO’ work to improve education quality in the southern Africa region in partnership with SADC.
