This report provides an understanding of how transversal competencies are viewed, implemented, and adapted in education policy and curriculum across the Asia-Pacific region. The publication consolidates the results of ten country studies carried out in 2013-2014 in ten countries and economies of the Asia-Pacific region, including: Australia; China Hong Kong SAR; China, Shanghai; India; Japan; Republic of Korea; Malaysia; Mongolia; Philippines; and Thailand. The findings from these studies will be used to identify successful implementation strategies, as well as how to address current challenges. It is hoped this report will be a key resource for countries in the region to apply to education policy and contribute to progress in implementing and incorporating transversal skills into education curriculum. The report contains a foreword; acknowledgements; list of abbreviations; an introduction; and a bibliography. The following are appended: (1) summary of case studies; and (2) research framework and questionnaires. [This report is the result of collaborative efforts in conducting a regional study on integrating 21st century/transversal competencies in education policy and curriculum framework in ten countries and economies of the Asia-Pacific Region conducted under the framework of the 2013 activities of Asia-Pacific Education Research Institutes Network (ERI-Net).
