  • Knowledge generation: through support for the production of research, publications and resources on gender in education. 
  • Knowledge management:  through support for a wide range of initiatives for the communication and dissemination of information relating to gender-in-education including the Regional UNGEI web-site and participation in national, regional and global fora.
