UNESCO IESALC’s participation in #WHEC2022 | Round Table: Financing Higher Education

19 May, 2022 hora: 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Within the framework of the UNESCO World Higher Education Conference 2022, UNESCO IESALC will take part in the Round Table: Financing Higher Education at 14:30-16:00 (Spain time) on May 19, 2022.

The demand for higher education has nothing but increased in the recent decades and is expected to continue to do so in the foreseeable future, propelled by demographic growth and an ever more knowledge-based economy. In order to realize the human capital potential of countries and to establish the foundation of their development, higher education systems worldwide will require considerable funding in order to increase their overall capacity, quality and equity. In this sense, this round table analyzes how the policy choices in higher education funding directly impact its levels of access, equity and quality.

A global conversation about public and private funding is key for the success of the Sustainable Development Goal (4), to inclusive and equitable education and lifelong learning opportunities for all, highlighting human capital as the enabler of all the other goals.


  • Damtew Teferra, Professor of Higher Education, University of Kwazulu-Natal (South Africa).
