Valorizing Evidence on Inclusive Social Development to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals

To support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its inclusive social development goals, UNESCO has launched a project designed to improve the availability, accessibility and usage (commonly referred to as valorization) of useful evidence for making and monitoring inclusive policies. The project is funded by the Malaysian Funds-in-Trust with three participating countries: Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

In each country, the Project is led by a National Working Group (NWG) and coordinated by a policy think tank with technical support provided by UNESCO Jakarta Office. The NWGs implement the project in three stages:

Stage I: Situational analysis of practices related to the production and usage of research and evidence in policy design and planning in the country.

Stage II: Operational protocols and training materials designed to improve these practices and to address the identified gaps by building the capacity of institutions for valorization of evidence.

Stage III: MOST School on Inclusive Social Development as a national capacity-building module delivered by UNESCO and the lead national partner in order to:

  • Launch operational protocols and use developed training materials;
  • Enhance the capacity of professionals from different backgrounds (academia, government and civil society); and
  • Strengthen the research-policy interface towards the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.


UNESCO’s Inclusive Policy Lab will support multi-stakeholder collaboration in the target countries, and help disseminate the results of the project globally. The Lab is a free, interactive, collaborative, and educational platform that helps people from around the world co-create knowledge and apply it towards inclusive and equitable policies.

The Lab welcomes anyone interested in the theory and practice of social inclusion. Please register here.
