Early childhood: The region faces two significant challenges for skills development during early childhood: improving cognition and behavioral outcomes in children 0 to 5 years old.
Childhood: Most children in the region attend primary school. A major challenge for policymakers is to improve learning for students ages 6 to 11.
Adolescence: Although most children in the region start secondary school, not all complete it. A major challenge for the region is reducing secondary school dropout rates and attracting students to schools by improving learning for students ages 12 to 17.
Adulthood (workers): Today’s labor market requires constant retooling and upgrading of skills. Providing adult training opportunities is key to improving employment opportunities in formal jobs with higher earnings.
