The MoU is to enable UEW and MPA to build on the comparative strengths of both institutions to engage in policy research, analysis and advocacy especially in the areas related to sustainable development.
Specifically, this collaboration among other things seeks to:
- Facilitate the development of a curriculum framework to integrate all 17 SDGs and targets into tertiary education in Ghana through teaching and learning at all the colleges of the university.
- Develop an SDG-based Programme for students, NGOs, Executive Directors and Government Operatives.
- Support policy research and analysis in relation to Sustainable Development Policy Center of Millennium Promise;
- Jointly mobilize resources for research work emanating from the partnership.
MPA in partnership with UEW was selected to represent Ghana (together with Morocco and Turkey) for the SDSN Youth Global Schools Program pilot to create SDG-aligned curriculums at the national level.
The Global Schools Program is an initiative led by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network - Youth Initiative (SDSN Youth) in support of UNESCO's Global Action Program on Education for Sustainable Development (GAP-ESD).
