International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies

SDG 4: Quality education

Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all

 



The IEC provides the technical foundation for much of the electrical and electronic hardware that supports education, including communication technology, computers, routers, video, and radio.

 

IEC work also covers equipment developed for people with disabilities or reduced mobility, allowing equal access to the educational environment.

 

IEC work is relevant to the following SDG 4 targets

  • SDG 4.5: By 2030, eliminate gender disparities in education and ensure equal access to all levels of education and vocational training for the vulnerable, including persons with disabilities, indigenous peoples and children in vulnerable situations
  • SDG 4.a: Build and upgrade education facilities that are child, disability and gender sensitive and provide safe, non-violent, inclusive and effective learning environments for all
