New name, new logo for UNESCO’s Global Monitoring Report reflects new focus

Paris, 7 January - UNESCO’s Education for All Global Monitoring Report (GMR) has officially relaunched as the Global Education Monitoring Report (GEM Report).The GEM Report will be the mechanism for monitoring and reporting on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #4 and on education in the other SDGs.

It will also pay close attention to the global mechanism to be established to monitor and review the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and will report on the implementation of national and international strategies to help hold all relevant partners to account for their commitments, as part of the overall SDG follow-up and review.

The GEM Report will continue as an editorially independent, authoritative and evidence-based annual report, published by UNESCO. Drawing on a well-tested model and thirteen years of accumulated experience, it will continue to serve as an invaluable global resource and advocacy tool, promoting informed dialogue and increased public awareness about progress and challenges in education in different national contexts.

The first report in the new GEM Report series will be launched in September this year. It will discuss measurement and monitoring strategies of new global education targets from now until 2030. The Report will also examine the complex interrelationships and links between education and key development sectors.

The rebrand not only consists of a new name and logo but also a new look and design. Abracadabra Design Studio, a company chosen through an external call to tender, worked on these rebranding elements.
