The World Education Forum (Dakar, Senegal, 26-28 April 2000) was the first and most important event in education at the dawn of the new century. By adopting the Dakar Framework for Action, the 1,100 participants of the Forum reaffirmed their commitment to achieving Education for All by the year 2015 and entrusted UNESCO with the overall responsibility of coordinating all international players and sustaining the global momentum.
