Human resource development is the key to successfully achieving sustainable development, and a range of educational measures, including formal, non-formal and informal education and learning in broad terms is the primary tool to develop the human capacity required for sustainable development.

However, despite their potential and expectations, the impacts of educational measures on society-wide changes have yet to be demonstrated with substantiated evidence.
