The Education for All Global Monitoring Report

Developed by an independent team and published by UNESCO, the Education for All Global Monitoring Report (EFA GMR) is an authoritative reference that aims to inform, influence and sustain commitment towards Education for All.

The EFA GMR released a new paper two weeks ago showing that, despite out of school numbers stagnating, aid to education has fallen by 10% since 2010.
