The Assistant Director-General for External Relations and Cooperation

On behalf of the Director-General, I have the honour to invite you to participate in an information meeting on "Follow-up to Dakar" which will be held on Wednesday, 20 September 2000, in Room XII (Fontenoy), from 11.30 a.m. to 12.45 p.m.

The main focus of the meeting, which will be chaired by Mr Jacques Hallak, Assistant Director-General for Education a.i., will be the preparation of "National EFA Plans of Action" for which the enclosed guidelines have been prepared by the Education Sector in cooperation with relevant EFA partners. The aim of the guidelines is to stimulate follow-up actions at the country level, particularly through the setting-up or revival of national EFA forums whose task will be to coordinate and mobilize EFA-related actions at the country level. The guidelines are being issued in Arabic, English, French and Spanish, and will be distributed to all Member States by the end of September 2000.
The briefing will also provide an opportunity to outline other follow-up actions that already have taken place or will be undertaken in the period ahead; please see the attached summary.
Simultaneous translation will be provided in English and French. Relevant documents will be available in the meeting room.
Please accept, Sir/Madam, the assurances of my highest consideration.
Ahmed Sayyad
