A decade of the EFA Global Monitoring Report

The first Education for All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report (GMR) was published in 2002 on the subject Education for All - Is the world on track? A decade later, the deadline for achieving the EFA goals is that much nearer while the state of education has changed significantly for some and not enough for many others.

Here are some of the events and activities to mark this anniversary and the publication of this year’s GMR report on youth and skills.


2012 EFA Global Monitoring Report Colloquium - Youth and Skills: Putting education to work, Challenges and Opportunities for the UK

The UNESCO 2012 Education for All Global Monitoring Report (GMR) will be launched worldwide on October 16, 2012. The Report focuses on young people around the world, particularly those from marginalised groups, who are leaving school without the skills they need for the lives they wish to lead.

In the UK, the UK National Commission for UNESCO (UKNC) is partnering with the UKFIET to host a related GMR Colloquium at on Thursday 15 November. This event, held at University of Nottingham, will examine the challenges and opportunities the Report presents for the UK’s diverse actors in international skills development.

Blogging Series for the Tenth Anniversary of the Global Monitoring Report

In celebration of the tenth year of the Education for All Global Monitoring Report, the GMR team has launched a series on its World Education Blog recapping the findings of previous reports on conflict, early childhood, gender and other key education topics.

Features include a piece by Professor Alan Smith, UNESCO Chair in Education for Pluralism, Human Rights and Democracy, University of Ulster, on the effects of conflict on education.

Stay tuned as guest bloggers contribute their thoughts on how much education has changed since the first report was published a decade ago, as we work towards the launch of the tenth edition of the 2012 report on 16 October.
