Six Pacific island countries have joined the United Nations Global Partnership for Education following the endorsement of their own plans for education.
Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Samoa, the Solomon Islands, Tonga and Tuvalu are joining up.
The UN says the twelve year strategy promotes equitable access to high quality education by all Pacific Islanders, while encouraging inclusivity and opportunities for equal access to education and training.
The six countries and the Federated States of Micronesia have also benefited from the partnership’s Covid-19 emergency support.
