The third Global Report on Adult Learning and Education (GRALE III) takes a holistic approach to education and lifelong learning to support countries in achieving the goals set in in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. With its title The Impact of Adult Learning and Education on Health and Well-Being; Employment and the Labour Market; and Social, Civic and Community Life., the report aims to guide policymakers and practitioners in how to devise programmes, policies and frameworks in adult learning and education (ALE) which fit their respective contexts. It also shares lessons from the two previous monitoring reports published since 2009 (GRALE I and GRALE II) and considers the implications for ALE in all the five main areas of action outlined in the Belém Framework for Action, namely: policy; governance; financing; participation, inclusion and equity; and quality.
