In view of the joint meeting of SADC Ministers of Education and Training and Science, Technology and Innovation, 13th -17th June, 2022, hosted by the Republic of Malawi, we, as Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) working in the education sector in the region, hereby present few key areas for the Education Ministers’ consideration and action. We are aware that agenda for such short meetings cannot be exhaustive, hence, while commenting on issues which directly align to the meeting agenda, we also take this opportunity to raise some pertinent issues for the regional consideration in the quest to enhance quality, equitable and sustainable education. Therefore, this paper essentially builds upon SADC Protocol on Education and Development and the global commitments on education, which set out a universal rights-based agenda for a new social contract for education around lifelong learning for all through all strands of education.
