Reflections on the World Education Forum and Financing Education and Skills: New and Old Modalities: New and Old Partners
This issue of NORRAG News comes after two major conferences on education - the World Forum on Education (WEF) in Incheon, South Korea, on 19-22 May 2015 and the Oslo Education Summit on 6-7 July 2015 in Norway - and just after the Financing for Development (FFD) conference in Addis Ababa on 13-16 July 2015.
Given the importance of these education policy meetings and their proximity in terms of time to the Sustainable Development 2030 Agenda summit in September in New York, we have given these conferences some special attention in the first section of this issue. Moreover, since the draft Education Sustaibale Development Goal (SDG) and its associated targets have consumed so much engagement by multiple actors over the past three years, we have given the actual text of the Incheon Declaration a good deal of attention. Lastly, NORRAG was also present in the FFD Conference in July. Consequently, we decided it would be useful if this issue substantially focused on the financing of education and skills. The bulk of this issue, therefore, is concerned with many different dimensions of education and skills financing.
