This is the statement issued by the leaders' at the event: "Financing the Future: Education 2030", held on September 20, 2017 at the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
The world is facing an alarming education crisis. Without immediate action, over half of the upcoming youth generation - 825 million of the 1.6 billion young people in 2030 - will be left behind, shut out of opportunity, particularly the poorest and most marginalized. The growing skills gap will stunt economic growth, with far reaching consequences. Today, there are 30 million displaced children, 10 million of whom are refugees, and only half of whom have any regular schooling.
The information contained in this policy note is based on the findings of an evidence review conducted by ODI ‘Addressing Threats to Girls Education in Conflict-affected Contexts’ (2017) as well as other cited publications.
