Author: Albiana Jasiqi, supported by NORRAG
The Global Partnership for Education (GPE) introduced the GPE Multiplier Fund in 2017 as an innovative finance instrument that provides an incentive and the financial resources to catalyze “more and better investment” in education. The fund offers grants to lower middle-income countries, and its funding must be invested in combination with another grant or loan. With a total of USD 300 million, the GPE Multiplier Fund aims to help countries to mobilize investments and bring partners together to help governments build education systems with robust use of data and evidence.
