Global Partnership for Education
Three years after the announcement of its historic contribution of 200 million euros to the Global Partnership for Education at the Dakar conference, France will participate on July 28 and 29 in the 4th reconstitution conference of the Global Partnership for Education in London.
This conference, co-organized by Boris Johnson and Uhuru Kenyatta, aims to raise $ 5 billion in pledges to fund projects for quality education in 87 developing countries over the next five years (2021-2025).
International mobilization in education aid is crucial today as the "learning crisis" that already characterized many regions of the world has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The closure of schools during the health crisis has led to major educational disruptions: two thirds of developing countries have had to reduce their budgets allocated to education, more than 100 million children are at risk of learning delays and nearly 20 million of girls may never go back to school.
The ambitious target set by the Global Education Partnership is expected to help get 88 million more children in school and improve learning conditions and outcomes for 175 million girls and boys.
