Strengthening Education in ASEAN
At their
October 2009 Summit, ASEAN Leaders adopted the “Cha
-Am Hua Hin Declaration on Strengthening Cooperation on Educa-
tion to Achieve an ASEAN Caring and Sharing Community.” This
declaration recognized the central importance of education to theentire community-building process of ASEAN.In support of this declaration, the ASEAN-US Technical Assis-tance and Training Facility (Facility) is providing support to theASEAN Secretariat to promote educational development, primarilyby supporting policymakers to create sound policy in education.In 2009 ASEAN Education Ministers asked the ASEAN Secretariatto develop a five-year work plan to implement the provisions of theASEAN Socio-Cultural Community Blueprint. The following year,in collaboration with the ASEAN Secretariat, the Facility supportedthe development of the Five Year
ASEAN Work Plan on Education (2011-2015),
which was officially adopted by the ASEAN Educa-tion Ministers in January 2011. The work plan stresses four priori-ty areas:1) ASEAN Awareness;2) Quality and Access to Education;3) Internationalization of Education and4) Support to other Sectoral Bodies.As there are strong education programs at the national levelthroughout the region, the Facility is helping the Secretariat coor-dinate activities that promote member state-to-member state ca-pacity building. The Facility is now supporting the implementationof this work plan through the development of ASEAN awarenesscurriculum materials, an undergraduate ASEAN Studies Course,and guidelines on the creation of an ASEAN Eco-School Program.The Facility will also host a major conference on Rural Connectivi-ty for Education and Development in September 2011.The ASEAN University Network, the Southeast Asian Ministers ofEducation Organization, the Senior Officials Meeting on Educa-tion, the Secretariat, and the private sector are all key partners inthe implementation of these activities.
