Link to Education, Gender and Development Timeline
Policies and Practice of Dutch Development Cooperation over the year
Access to inclusive and equitable quality education is a fundamental human right. Education is like a “midwife”: it facilitates the development of the full potential of men and women. At the same time it may serve as one of the most powerful tools to address inequality in education. As the slogan goes: “leave no one behind”. Education may also contribute to narrowing the gender gap, which is still existing in many countries.
Gender issues in education have always been key themes in Dutch development cooperation. Since it is such an important topic, NICC has created a separate timeline on gender & education which you can view by clicking on the link below!
