Every 4-5 years, an external evaluation is carried out on the work of the GEM Report to see how it could be further improved to provide greater added value to its audience, and help it contribute better towards advancing Sustainable Development Goal 4 on education (SDG 4).
The ICON-INSTITUT Consulting Group and Ockham IPS are carrying out this period’s evaluation and would like to ask for your cooperation in participating in a short online survey about the UNESCO GEM Report. The questionnaire can be completed in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese or Russian and takes less than 15 minutes to complete. If you click the link you will find an option at the top right to choose your language preference. Established in 2002, the GEM Report is an editorially independent report, hosted and published by UNESCO. It aims to monitor progress on education in the SDG and promotes accountability in education worldwide. While its main output is the publication of a major thematic report every 1.5 years, it regularly publishes a variety of supporting resources, including policy papers, Regional, Gender and Youth Reports, technical background papers, and internet resources. By providing reliable data, analysis, and policy recommendations, the GEM Report seeks to plays a crucial role in shaping global education agendas and fostering informed decision-making to ensure inclusive and equitable education for all.Your responses will be collected anonymously and will only be presented at an aggregated level. The independent evaluators from ICON-INSTITUT Consulting Group and Ockham IPS will alone have access to your responses and will process your information in a secure and professional way, in line with the United Nations Evaluation Group (UNEG) Norms and Standards for Evaluation and the UNEG Ethical Guidelines for Evaluation.
