The resource manual aims to ensure adherence to child rights principles based on the Convention on the Rights of the Child, focusing on equal opportunities for the most disadvantaged. The ultimate goal of the resource manual is to ensure that all children may equitably exercise their educational and environmental rights in totality, as described in the Convention. The resource manual provides guidance on policy and planning for sustainable development throughout the education sector in both non-formal and formal learning places at all levels of action, from national to local. It is primarily intended for use as an evidence- based policy advocacy and capacity development tool by ministries of education and their partners, such as education professionals from UNICEF and other development or humanitarian aid agencies, especially planners, curriculum developers and teacher educators.
