The purpose of the Pacific Regional Inclusive Education Review is to document key trends, achievements, lessons, gaps and challenges, resources, good practices and country case studies in relation to inclusive education in the Pacific.

The review saw the participation of 15 countries through multistakeholder survey workshops, and 12 regional agencies provided survey data. Review findings highlight many useful Pacific inclusion practices, as well as a concern across the region that there is a need for significantly increased efforts to ensure access to quality and inclusive education for disadvantaged children. Recommendations from this review support the implementation of the Pacific Regional Inclusive Education Framework (PRIEF), which offers a clear pathway towards this aim.
