The Joint Parliamentary Peer Group (JPPG) of the NorthSouthDialogue of Parliaments with MPs from Zambia and Austria focuses its cooperation on youth and education. This is part of the (inter)national work to implement the Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4), namely to ensure inclusive and quality education and promotion of lifelong learning opportunities for all in Austria and Zambia.

On the 8th and 9th of October the first INDABA on "Job creation for our Zambian youth - from challenges to action" took place in Lusaka. In addition to the representatives of the JPPG and the National Assembly of Zambia, numerous experts and stakeholders from the administration, civil society and science participated in the two-day event.

The Government of the Republic of Zambia recognizes that education is an important factor in the fight against poverty and seeks an education system designed to improve equal access to quality facilities. The main objective of the National Implementation Framework III is therefore to qualify human resources, with a particular focus on increasing learning and reducing inequalities and inefficiencies.
