SDG4 Data Week: Understanding the Monitoring of SDG 4: Targets, Actors, Data and Resources

UNESCO and its partners have designed a monitoring framework for the Education 2030 Agenda, but for those not involved in the development process, the SDG 4 data framework can pose a challenge. To address this, NORRAG is organizing two brown bag lunches on “Understanding the monitoring of SDG 4: Targets, actors, data and resources,” with the support of the Education Network of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).

The series aims to provide members of the education community in Geneva and beyond with an opportunity to get familiar with the requirements and frameworks for monitoring SDG 4 targets, whether at the global or local level. The short series will provide the most recent information about SDG 4 monitoring frameworks, and seeks to introduce stakeholders to tools and practical examples for finding and/or producing SDG 4 indicators.

The brown bag series is oriented towards stakeholders in Geneva, including staff at international organizations, NGOs, and individuals engaged in the SDG 4 agenda. The events are scheduled for the 11th and 13th of July, 2018 and will take place over lunch in 90-minute sessions at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. Lunch will be provided, and the format will include an in-depth expert presentation followed by an informal Q&A session.

11 July 2018: Geneva launch of UNESCO Institute for Statistics ‘Quick Statistical Guide on SDG 4 Indicators’

This first BBL will be the official Geneva launch of the ‘Quick Statistical Guide on SDG 4 Indicators’. It will provide for a unique opportunity for International Organizations, NGOs and individuals to engage with the lead organization in charge of developing and disseminating the SDG 4 global monitoring indicators. As co-convener of several key SDG 4 initiatives, the UNESCO Institute for Statistics has been spearheading discussions on the development, validation and implementation of the global and thematic monitoring frameworks for education. This BBL will be an opportunity for Geneva-based and international stakeholders who have not participated in ongoing technical and political dialogues to define the monitoring framework to engage with UIS on the process and use of these technical approaches

Introduction: Sabina Handshin, SDC Focal Point Education

Presentation: Friedrich Huebler, UNESCO Institute for Statistics

Chair: Joost Monks, Executive Director, NORRAG

When: Wednesday 11 July, 12pm to 1.30pm

Where: The Graduate Institute, Geneva & live streaming on the NORRAG social media channels.

13 July 2018: Understanding data sources to measure SDG 4: using household surveys to monitor SDG 4 targets.

This second BBL in the series will introduce the audience to the production of SDG 4 indicators from Household surveys (HH) data. It will demonstrate how the global standards and international methodologies, building on the discussions in the previous BBL, can be applied to rapidly obtain local versions of SDG 4 monitoring data and outputs. (HHS) have emerged as one of the main data sources used to monitor a number of SDG 4 targets as they allow for disaggregation across equity variables and more detailed evaluation of learning outcomes. But working with household surveys can be overwhelming at first due to their complexity. It can be difficult for non-experts to understand how to produce indicators from the raw data, or even to extract indicators rapidly from the various existing platforms.

Presentation: Sheena Bell, Education Specialist, UNICEF ECARO

Introduction & Chair: Patrick Montjouridès, Senior Research Associate, NORRAG

When: Friday 13 July, 12pm to 1.30pm

Where: The Graduate Institute, Geneva & live streaming on the NORRAG social media channels.
