International Conference on Sustainable Development
The conference is co-organized by the Institute for Work and Family Integration (IWFI), the International Federation for Family Development (IFFD) and its national branch, Nigerian Association for Family Development (NAFAD). The final conclusions and recommendations will be presented both to the Commission on Social Development of the United Nations and to the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development of Nigeria.
In 2017 we choose The Educational Perspective which is the Sustainable Development goal four (SDG4).
Education is a fundamental human right and is indispensable for the achievement of sustainable development. We are only able to empower girls, combat climate change, fight inequality and end extreme poverty if all stakeholders, including business, commit themselves to advancing the education goal.
Thus, SDG4 is the best possible way to make sure that poverty can be eradicated, corruption can be prevented and the formal educational system can reach the level human dignity requires.
The main purpose of this conference is to gather both international and national experts in the quest of replies to the following questions:
– What lessons from the international experience can be learnt and applied to the Nigerian social model?
– What should be the right priorities and indicators to apply and assess SDG4?
– What is the role of the family in this process? How can it be promoted?
