What are country EFA reports?
Since July 1998, some 180 countries have participated
in the most in-depth assessment of basic education ever
undertaken. Headed by a national EFA coordinator,
national assessment teams have prepared reports outlining
the progress towards education for all as well as
pinpointing shortcomings towards that goal since 1990
in their country.
The EFA 2000 Assessment was launched by the Education for All Forum and has been coordinated by ten
regional technical advisory groups (R-Tags) in East Asia, South Asia,
Central Asia, the Pacific, Southern and Eastern Africa, Central and
Western Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean as well as Europe and
The country reports will be synthesized into regional reports
to be analyzed at six regional EFA conferences scheduled to take place
from December 1999 to February 2000.
The outcome of these conferences will feed into the World Education Forum,
Dakar, Senegal, 26-28 April 2000
Availability of reports
Country education for all reports are available in the
language of submission (English, French or Spanish).
For reports in Arabic, click here (link to webpage of the
regional Assessment group of the Arab States).
The reports can be searched by country and by region*.
Every effort is made to ensure that the EFA Country Reports reproduced here
are the most recent versions received at the EFA Forum Secretariat.
Nonetheless, in order to ensure the widest representation on the Web of all
Country Reports, time constraints may not have allowed us to include all
changes proposed to individual reports after the end of February 2000.
Country Reports received only in hard copy have not been included. Please
also note that EFA country reports online contain text, tables and graphs
only, but not the statistical annexes.
