2015 GMR launch – 9 April 2015
Published regularly since 2002, the 2015 EFA Global Monitoring Report (GMR) has become an indispensable source of comparative data and robust analysis on EFA. Policy makers, researchers and education activists from around the world use the Report’s findings to ensure that their work is based on solid evidence and sound advice.
This year’s Report, the final in its series, provide an independent and authoritative assessment of progress made against the internationally-agreed Education for All goals. It will seek to answer questions on which goals have been met, and where progress has proven difficult. Which policies have worked best, and what lessons have we learned to guide future reform? The 2015 edition will provide deeper analysis than ever before, examining global and national trends and policies since 1990. The GMR will also assess the impact of the EFA movement and make recommendations on how to monitor education goals beyond 2015.
The international launch of the 2015 GMR will take place on 9 April 2015 with high-level events taking place in New Delhi, Paris and New York, with national and regional events being held in Santiago, Brasilia, South Sudan and dozens of other venues. The New Delhi event has been co-hosted by the Government of India. For a full list of planned events, see the GMR’s web page.
The Launch will take place just weeks ahead of the 2015 World Education Forum in Incheon, Korea (19-22 May), where world leaders will identify priorities for international education until 2030. Their proposals will be taken up at the UN Summit, which is set to agree on new sustainable development goals on 2 September 2015.
The GMR team collaborates closely with its partners to ensure that its findings have a long-lasting impact on education policy discussions. One such partner, the Global Campaign for Education, will organize a Global Action Week during final week of April. Networks of local NGOS, schools, ministries and the media will use GMR findings to inform their debates and actions to promote better education around the world.
