Speaking at the maiden meeting of the forum, Prof Singh said the forum would provide a platform to discuss how to identify critical knowledge and skills gaps among professionals involved in education policy design and implementation and identify examples of practical learning actions in support of just transition strategies. It would also help identify the impacts of practical skills development and training.
