World Education Forum 2015

19-22 May 2015, Incheon, Republic of Korea

At the World Education Forum (Dakar, Senegal) in 2000, the international community affirmed their commitment to achieving Education for All (EFA) by 2015 through the adoption of the Dakar Framework for Action.

UNESCO, as the global lead coordinating agency for EFA, will organize the World Education Forum 2015 (WEF 2015) in order to take stock of how well countries have delivered on their commitments to EFA, to reach agreement on a new education agenda and to adopt a global framework for action for the years to come.

The outcomes of the Forum will be promoted by all stakeholders as an agreed position on education and as part of the global development agenda post-2015 to be adopted at the United Nations Summit meeting in September 2015.

As reflected in UNESCO’s Programme and Budget 2014-2017, the government of the Republic of Korea (ROK) has generously accepted to host the WEF 2015, in May in Incheon.
