Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannHigher Education is back on the development agenda.

Last month I was invited to participate in a gathering at Wilton Park (UK), which discussed higher education and development. The meeting brought together high government officials from developing countries and the UK, higher education experts and practitioners, civil society organizations and business representatives.

As the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), launched in 2000, run their course next year intensive discussions are going on around the world about what is to come next. The MDGs focused on eight goals: eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, achieve universal primary education, promote gender equality and empower women, reduce child mortality, improve maternal health, combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases, ensure environmental sustainability, and develop a global partnership for development. 

Among other topics, we discussed what higher education should deliver for developing countries in the 21 st century; higher education, jobs and growth; innovation, quality and affordability; building networks and other ways to strengthen higher education systems and institutions.
