Language is key to inclusive development. Improving access to high quality mother tongue-based multilingual education (MLE) is a critical part of the Education for All (EFA) process, particularly in Asia and the Pacific. The Asia Multilingual Education Working Group (MLE WG) is convening the Fourth International Conference on Language and Education – Multilingual Education for All in Asia and the Pacific: Policies, Practices and Processes. The conference brings together MLE partners to increase understanding of┬áthe importance of expanding access to effective MLE and strengthen momentum for MLE in Asia and the Pacific region. The conference will facilitate the exchange of effective practices and experiences, link MLE theory to practice and foster policy dialogue. The conference will serve as a platform for forward-looking debate and the shaping of effective education policies and programmes for the post-2015 agenda.[one_third]
