East Asia and Pacific Regional UNGEI
The East Asia and Pacific Regional UNGEI was launched in May 2002 and seeks to establish networks and partnerships among experts and organizations promoting education and gender rights. At country level, UNGEI is active in Cambodia, China, Lao PDR, Mongolia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam.
The goal of the regional group is to ensure the availability of a quality education for all girls across the region. It aims to strengthen existing programmes for girls’ education by ensuring that the national EFA plans will be gender responsive and that the implementation of the plans and monitoring systems put in place pay due attention to gender issues.
