The UNESCO Inclusive Policy Lab enables knowledge co-creation and translation into inclusive practices. The Lab operates via a global online service that:

Develops platforms to operationalise and evaluate policy
Build communities of practice from subject matter experts based in Government, NGOs, Academia and Industry
Enable the co-production of knowledge creation and exchange
Improve constructs, models and capacities for the design and delivery of more inclusive and equity-weighted policies
Drive adoption and use of evidence in inclusive policy and decision making
The Education and Digital Skills team explores global challenges that affect people worldwide. Membership is drawn from higher education, government and professional bodies as well as non-governmental organisations. The work of this team is crucial in identifying the latest academic research and enquiry to inform policy and practice with a specific focus on education and digital skills.
