One of a series of papers aimed at promoting better education in South Asia developed from the collaboration between the UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia and the UN Girls' Education Initiative and had its genesis at a Regional Meeting on Accelerating Girls' Education in South Asia in February 2005.
This paper raises several key points in moving the gender agenda forward in education. One is to evaluate and derive policy lessons from the rich experience of innovations in gender and education that exists in South Asia. These policy lessons need then to be mainstreamed, so that they permeate all aspects of educational policy and implementation.
