On June 17, UNESCO launched at its headquarters the first “Global Report on Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE)”, published jointly by UNESCO and UNICEF, which provides information on global and regional trends in ECCE. This report:

  • Highlights the importance of ECCE and exposes persistent injustices and gaps in policies and investments.
  • Emphasizes the importance of providing equitable and quality ECCE opportunities,
  • Calls for transforming education that must begin in the first years of life.

The report is the first in a biennial series dedicated to monitoring the achievement of SDG target 4.2 and responds to the promise contained in the “Tashkent Declaration and Commitments for Action to Transform ECCE”, which was adopted by governments and the international community in November 2022.

OMEP participated in the event and was represented by Mr. Gilles Petreault, OMEP representative at UNESCO and Vice President of the national committee of OMEP France.
