Global consultation on the proposed post-2015 global education indicators begins In the run-up to 2015, when the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will reach their deadline, several initiatives are underway to formulate a new set of goals and targets for sustainable development.

The Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals (OWG) ,a UN-appointed task force, has released a proposal for the whole development agenda, including education.

Closely aligned with the education targets formulated by the OWG, the international education community has proposed a set of specific education and learning targets in the Muscat Agreement . The challenge now lies in developing indicators to monitor these targets.

In response, a Technical Advisory Group (TAG), coordinated by the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) and including members from the EFA Global Monitoring Report, the OECD, UNESCO, UNICEF, and the World Bank, has proposed a set of indicators. The TAG proposal , which draws on the OWG, Muscat Agreement and the , is now available for consultation.
