German minister presents concept for education strategy in development

Last week, Dirk Niebel, the German Federal Minister for Economic Cooperation and Development, presented the draft concept for Ger­many's first ever holistic education strategy in development policy to 200 high-level education sector repre­sen­tatives from Ger­many and abroad. The presentation and discussion of the strategy took place at the international education conference "More education. More growth. More justice. On our way to an education strategy for German development policy", which was held at the Berlin-Bran­den­burg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. The conference was organised by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). For the first time in the 50-year history of the BMZ, a strategy for German development policy is being designed that addresses the education sector as a whole – from primary school through secondary education, to vocational training and higher education, and all the way to adult education. Another novelty is that the Ministry is elaborating this strategy in a joint process, working with partners in developing countries, civil society, the private sector and academia, and with other German ministries and the state implementing organisations for development cooperation. Ordinary citizens are also able to provide input. "I invite all interested citizens to offer constructive comments on the draft strategy," said Dirk Niebel, "and to contribute to its further development." This can be done using the dedicated e-mail address This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . The draft is available on the BMZ website as a download as of 1 March.
