ED welcome to Abedian.app: It took half a century of maps by worldclassengineer Fazle Abed to integrate the 30 cooperations of community building by 1 billion poorest Asian Village mothers. Economists' diaries of The 30th cooperation begun with Economist dialogues at the height of subprime 2008 , involved 8 years of humansai pre-training that became 8 billion beings united declaration of 17 sustainability/cooperation development goals and has converged with the 8 years to date of Guterres roadmapping of UN2 comprised of 9 dynamic subystems of above zero-sum human networking. Bangladesh as deepest place branding of SDG5 celebrates being 52 years young in 2023 the 265th year of smithian moral sentiments at Abed's Alma mater Glasgow Universiity. Supporting hi-tech hi-trust Asian place winners include: singapore 2023; hong kong (22.1 Place winners 22.22022 ... Thailand2021 ..) . Abed was not just a world class civil engineer; he dedicated half a century until his death in December 2019 as servant leader. Aligned by HG Wells bon mots: civilisation is a race between education and catastrophe, Abed Bhai preferred to be seen as host of microeducationsummit not financiers summits: his gravitation purpose of 30 women empowered cooperations that of united refugees, villagers and civil societies in ENDING POVERTY. Fortunately for the worlds poorest new nation Bangaldesh 1971- Abed had networks like no other community leader. HIs friends' coop roadmapping reached out to intel vitalised by at least a billion village mothers in tropical inland asia where, a third of infants were dying of diarrhea before Abed's person to person networking became the best news ever chatted. Fro mid 1950s studies in Glasgow he spent nearly 13 years growing to be Royal Dutch Shell Oil Company's regional CEO. So his lifetime searches uniquely capitalised on what UK and Dutch Royal Societies (soon Japan Royals too) knew how to help end the poverty their colonial era had up to 1945 trapped the majority of humans world trade in. Simply put most Asian coastal belts link national borders defined by what these < a href="http://www.kc3.dev">3 kingdoms designed in to trading barriers over nearly half millennium. And which had made the English language that of world class engineering (digital age as well as pre-digital) So by 1970s these nations royal societies (including londons arts green-geographical, medicinie, science, architects ...) were happy that a grounded movement could link them into what they didnt fully know culturally or consciously. From 1970 on Abed linked in global village mapping like no one else - through these relationships and by designing business microfrachises not charity wherever possible for village women to own. To study with abed alumni is to join in the world's most cooperative empowering women movements for good as well as of childrens development.

Qian Tang (born 8 December 1950) has been the Assistant Director-General for Education at UNESCO since April 2010.

Early life and education[edit]

Qian Tang was born on 8 December 1950 in BeijingChina.[1] He holds a PhD in biology and a master's degree in human kinetics from the University of WindsorCanada as well as a bachelor's degree in education from Shanxi UniversityTaiyuan, China. He was one of the first students to be sent by the Chinese government to study abroad after the country initiated reforms in the 1970s.



Qian Tang started his career in the mid-1970s as a secondary school teacher in Shanxi Province, China. He is the author of many publications and articles in education.

Chinese Government[edit]

In 1985, he was posted to the Chinese Embassy in Ottawa, Canada, where he served until 1989 as First Secretary, responsible for promoting academic cooperation between Canadian and Chinese universities.

From 1992 to 1993, he was Deputy Director-General in the Bureau of Science and Technology of the Shanxi Provincial Government in Xi’an. He also served at the Chinese Ministry of Education's Department of Vocational and Technical Education in Beijing, first as Director of the Division on Policy, Planning and Cooperation (1989-1991) and later as the Assistant Director-General of the Department (1991-1992). He was instrumental in formulating and implementing China's national policy on the development of technical vocational education.[2]


Qian Tang started his career at UNESCO in 1993 as Senior Programme Specialist and later Chief for Technical and Vocational Education, where he contributed to the creation of the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre in BonnGermany and also led preparations on the Second International Congress on Technical and Vocational Education in SeoulRepublic of Korea, serving as its Secretary-General.[3] He then occupied a number of senior positions in the Education Sector.

He steered efforts on the global Education for All initiative, which ran from 2000 to 2015, focusing on the provision of quality basic education for children, youth and adults.[4][5]

Since 2010, Qian Tang is Assistant Director-General for Education at UNESCO. He heads UNESCO's Education Sector, which includes around 400 staff at the headquarters, field offices and the seven education Institutes.

Under his leadership, the Education Sector spearheaded the formulation of the Education 2030 agenda, encapsulated in Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG 4), which calls for ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all. [6] [7] UNESCO is coordinating and monitoring its implementation at the global and regional levels, as entrusted by the Incheon Declaration adopted at the World Education Forum in 2015.[8]

In the course of his term, Qian Tang had assumed parallel duties. From September 2015 to July 2016, he was Officer-in-Charge of the Bureau of Strategic Planning, having led the presentation of UNESCO's Programme and Budget document (38C/5) at the 38th session of General Conference. From November 2016 to March 2017, he was Director ad interim of the Human Resources Management bureau, driving forward the revisions of human resources policies to improve the Organization's management.

UNESCO Director-General candidacy[edit]

In March 2017, Qian Tang was officially nominated as China's candidate for the post of Director-General of UNESCO.[9] Elections for the post will take place during UNESCO's General Conference, to be held from 30 October to 14 November 2017.
