|Countries are at the heart of the Education for All movementThe Dakar Framework for Action places the main responsibility for achieving education for all on countries and
requests all States to develop or strengthen existing national plans of
action by 2002 at the latest. These plans, it stipulates, should be
integrated into wider poverty reduction and development frameworks.
It also recommends that countries establish or strengthen
National EFA Forums to support their efforts and that all relevant
ministries and national civil society organizations be systematically
represented on them.
In an effort to assist countries in drawing up or strengthening
existing national EFA plans, UNESCO has developed Country Guidelines on
the Preparation of National EFA Plans of Action.
This section provides the names of National EFA Forum members as
well as of the National EFA Co-ordinators. It also reports on
development frameworks that are operating in countries and whether EFA
plans are integrated into these frameworks, and if so, which ones.
The texts of National EFA Plans, once completed, will also
figure in this section.
