International Forum on Literacy Policies and the Development Objective in Mexico City

The International Forum on Literacy Policies and the Development Objective (ODS) 4 was held  November 13 and 14 in Mexico City. This event was organized by the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning  (UIL) and CREFAL, with the collaboration of the Ministry of Public Education of Mexico (SEP).

The objective of this forum was to define new directions oriented mainly to the countries that have higher rates of people with lower literacy levels, considering the lessons learned and achievements of the first stage of the Global Alliance for Literacy within the Framework of Lifelong Learning (GAL). It was mostly representatives of those countries who participated in the meeting.

Carmen Campero participated on behalf of ICAE as Vice President for Latin America. She shared a brief report on the topics addressed and the main approaches of the discussion group on Associations Intersectoral Collaborations, which she coordinated. You can read more here:
