‘This Inventory showcases eighty-six countries and investigates how learning outcomes of non-formal and informal learning are being integrated alongside formal qualifications into regional and national qualifications frameworks for lifelong learning,’ said Arne Carlsen, Director of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning.

In the context of UNESCO’s Capacity Development Programme for Education for All, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and UNESCO developed a normative framework with a sector-wide approach to education. The aim of this case study is to provide a coherent and contextualized normative framework that promotes lifelong learning for the whole education sector in DRC .
