Education for All 2000-2015: Achievements and Challenges
The 2015 Education for All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report (GMR) will be released on April 9th. This year’s GMR is special: 2015 is the deadline for the six Education for All goals agreed by governments in Dakar, Senegal, in 2000. The 2015 Report will thus be the twelfth and final one in the GMR series. It will provide a definitive assessment of what has (and has not) been achieved at both global and country levels, and will be entitled Education for All 2000-2015: Achievements and Challenges.
As always, the GMR will include the most up-to-date statistical evidence, in-depth policy analysis and informative case studies. Analysing each EFA goal in turn, the Report will highlight policies and practices that have helped (or even hindered) national progress. It will take a particular look at trends in domestic financing and international aid for education.
The 2015 GMR will also critically assess the current formulations of the proposed post-2015 education targets and provide recommendations to help global leaders define and monitor new education priorities to be agreed upon at Incheon, Korea at the World Education Forum on 19-22 May and then at the UN Summit on 25-27 September.
The GMR and its launches will receive a high degree of attention from policy makers, the media and the general public. Civil society organizations use GMR findings as advocacy tools, while governments and multilateral organizations use them to inform their national policies and international agendas.
The 2015 GMR launch on April 9th will kick off with international events in Delhi, Paris and New York, featuring leading voices and distinguished experts from government, international organizations, civil society and academia. GMR findings will then be presented and debated at launch events around the world including during Global Action Week in late April.
This is where the GMR’s partners can truly make a difference – helping achieve the goal of informing, influencing and promoting genuine commitment towards better education, and explaining its crucial role in achieving sustainable development.
