ACKNOWLEDGING, that education is a right for every citizen and permanent resident in Zimbabwe

 

COGNISANT that the state, through reasonable legislative and other measures, must ensure     that education is progressively available and accessible even to Adults as constitutionally obligated.

 

FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGING, the importance of Early Child Development (ECD) in laying the foundation for Children through education.

 

CONCERNED, that Early Child Development (ECD) is confronted with a myriad of challenges such as inadequate funding, shortage of classrooms, Information Communication Technology (ICT) equipment teachers and reading materials, among other things;

 

This House calls upon:

  1. the Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to prioritize the construction of school infrastructure and recruitment of teachers for Early Child Development (ECD)
  2. the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development to provide adequate financial resources for Early Child Development programs.

 

  1. The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Trade

 

WHEREAS Section 327 (2) (a) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe provides that an international treaty which has been concluded or executed by or under the authority of the President does not bind Zimbabwe until it has been approved by Parliament;

WHEREAS The Georgetown Agreement, created in 1975, is the Framework Act of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States which aims to ensure sustainable development and poverty reduction within the ACP’s Member States.

WHEREAS The Revised Georgetown Agreement was opened for signature in 2019, and came into force in April 2020. The Revised Agreement endorses the Organisations change of name from the ACP Group of States to the Organisation of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (OACPS). Other significant changes include among others, a revision of addressing the challenges to development in all its dimensions with respect to environmental matters, climate change, peace and security, gender and private sector development.

 

NOW THEREFORE, in terms of Section 327 (2) (a) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe, this House resolves that the aforesaid agreement be and is hereby approved for accession.
