International Organizations

The five multilateral institutions which organized the World Conference on Education for All in 1990 remain the key international stakeholders in the EFA movement: UNESCO, UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF and the World Bank.

Recent initiatives have sought to improve coordination between these five and other international institutions working towards EFA. For more information, see the Global Action Plan on this website.
