Many countries find it difficult to move from MDG’s focus on ‘education for all’ to the SDG’s focus on quality and lifelong learning, participants observed in the 4th Annual Meetings of NEQMAP, held on 14-16 December 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand. IID participated in the event representing Bangladesh. IID highlighted the need for proper research communication for policy advocacy in particular aligning the national education policy with the sustainable development goal.
