A research on “Corruption risk at the basic education Level and the likely impact on achieving the SDGs 4 and 16”, has cited misappropriation of resources and abuse of the system as the main corruption behaviour in the country’s basic education sector.
This was disclosed at a restitution meeting and awareness campaign on the research, organised by the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII) in collaboration with the Ghana National Education Campaign Coalition (GNECC), with funding support from Transparency International.
Allocations for education and health in the proposed budget rose by 5.2 percent and 13.2 percent respectively from the outgoing fiscal year’s. Experts say that allocations for these two sectors should increase by around 25 and 20 percent, respectively, to help achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In fact, Bangladesh should invest more in education if it wants to change its future and achieve the goals set in the National Education Policy 2010 and Vision 2021, and also invest in the universal health coverage for everyone.
Tech enthusiasts claim Big Data could revolutionize governments and transform society. But many nations lack basic information about their populations.
Weak statistical systems are holding back human progress, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) warned in a report published in October last year.
The club of mostly rich nations fears that a lack of basic data is hindering progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the United Nations’ 17-point action plan for global prosperity, because policymakers cannot allocate resources efficiently.
During the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Forum opening ceremony, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said: “connecting the unconnected” is crucial for achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and for sharing information and giving all people a voice.
The Forum demonstrated how the WSIS and SDG processes are aligned at the implementation level and how this alignment can be strengthened.
WSIS Prizes recognized success in implementing development-oriented strategies that leverage the power of ICTs in support of the SDGs.
