The presentation of the revised technical guidance will note the rationale and process for the update, the main ways in which the revised edition differs from the original as well as those key features that have been retained. A second presentation by the Ministry of Education, Namibia will explore their experience of implementing comprehensive sexuality education at country level and open the discussion among webinar participants to examine ways in which this resource can be used to support current or planned programmes on sexuality education for young people at national and regional levels, and how best to respond to various partners and stakeholders who may express interest or concern about using the technical guidance in their context.
