  The World Education Forum was organized by the International Consultative Forum on Education for All, or the EFA Forum, as it is generally known. It is an international consortium set up to guide follow-up action to the 1990 World Conference on Education for All, to provide a forum for continuous consultation, and to promote co-operation between governments and their partners. Its goal is to expand and improve the provision of basic education in order to meet the basic learning needs of all children, youth and adults. The mandate of the EFA Forum expired at the World Education Forum, where the world community gave UNESCO the leadership role in the Education for All movement.
  The World Education Forum was hosted by the Government of Senegal, which recognizes the great importance of basic education for national progress. Sub-Saharan Africa faces some of the greatest challenges in education, yet many African countries have pursued their EFA goals, launched several bold initiatives and registered some notable successes. The Government of Senegal hopes the Forum will provide renewed momentum to all nations to expand educational opportunities for all and reduce adult illiteracy.
