“Although most countries have now rapidly moved towards remote learning, we still have over 1.3 billion children aged three to 17 who still don’t have access to connectivity at their homes,” said Tariq Al Gurg, chief executive of Dubai Cares.

“It is, in fact, estimated that just under half of all households in the world have no internet connection today.

“This represents a learning inequality of the greatest proportions that can have a lasting effect on the future.

“With education becoming increasingly digital, the negative consequences of the structure and inequities increase. Therefore, as the speed of digitalisation rises, the urgency to bridge the digital divide on connected or connected individuals does.”

He said creating the declaration took more than 14 months in a process steered by Unesco.

The declaration was created with the input of a 22-person group of expert advisers. A global consultation process, involving governments, civil society, young people, teachers, researchers and private sector companies.

Al Gurg said that the pandemic magnified the divide between those connected and those who are not.

“Let us remember that one small virus caused one of the biggest crises of our time, resulting in a global lockdown for the 1.6 billion children and youth and over 16 million teachers out of academic institutions in more than 190 countries,” said Mr Al Gurg.

Andrea Giannini, assistant director-general for education at Unesco, said that technology and innovation usually benefit the privileged. So the declaration will focus on those left behind.

UAE is not happy with what Houthi did recently. Targeting civilians is a cowardly act. Two missiles are a violent attack on UAE. UAE officials said, “This will not be tolerated.” UAE Strongly condemned the Houthi Militia’s attack, and Houthi will pay for this attack. 

MoFAIC Statement:

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said that the UAE would respond to this attack. It is “a heinous crime by the terrorist Houthi militia in breach of international and humanitarian laws”.

The Ministry said that this terrorist militia is persisting its unlawful activities. No one can do such inducing terror in the region to achieve its criminal aims and purposes. It has called on the international community to criticize and condemn these terrorist acts, targeting civilians and civil facilities.

The UAE also voiced its strong denunciation and condemnation of the terrorist Houthi militia’s invasion of Jazan in Saudi Arabia. Attack  done with a ballistic missile, which left two civilians injured.

The Ministry thought this a risky escalation and cowardly act that endangered civilians’ security and called for taking all required measures to defend civilians from Houthi threats.

“The security of the United Arab Emirates and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is inseparable. The Ministry noted that any threat confronting the Kingdom is a threat to the UAE’s security and stability,” the Ministry noted.
