EFA Global Monitoring Report – Consultation for the 2016 Report
Starting in 2016, a new series of reports will monitor the state of education in the framework of the anticipated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be finalized by the UN in September 2015. The first report in this series, the 2016 Report, will focus on ‘Education, sustainability and the post-2015 development agenda’, as decided with the strong support of the GMR Advisory Board. The 2016 report will carefully consider how education and major development sectors are inter-related, and determine which education strategies, policies and programmes are most effectively linked to the economic, social, environmental and political priorities of the new sustainable development agenda. The report will also establish a new monitoring framework for education, and examine key financing and governance challenges for the post-2015era.
As for each EFA GMR, we have initiated a public consultation process on the 2016 Report, which will continue until 28 January 2015. More information and the concept note are available at http://2016educationreportconsultation.wordpress.com
We are keen to hear your views on the chosen theme and the specific issues outlined. Your comments will contribute to our thinking on education’s role in sustainable development, and help shape the contents of the 2016 report. We are particularly interested in hearing from experts in non-education development sectors, as well as from researchers, sector experts, practitioners, teachers, governments, non-governmental organizations, and aid donors. If you have a strong interest in education and development, please consider sharing your views.
We would greatly appreciate your help in circulating this message to your respective local, national and regional networks.
Should you require any further information please contact the GMR Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
