|The 2012 EFA Global Monitoring Report|
As we approach 2015, there is an urgent need to review progress towards the Education for All (EFA) and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and discuss new options on how they can be achieved. United Nations Development Group (UNDG) is leading efforts to catalyse a “global conversation” on post-2015 through 50 national consultations and nine global thematic consultations by March 2013.
To contribute to this process, UNESCO and UNICEF, with other United Nations (UN) agencies and NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations), will launch a six-month “global conversation” with leading education stakeholders in September. Participants include governments and local authorities, international and regional organizations, the private sector, technical and vocational education and training institutions, NGOs, civil society and community-based organizations.
