Education For All is a global partnership that calls for commitments and efforts by all the Member States, international organizations, bilateral agencies, civil society and the private sector. The Dakar Framework for Action adopted at the World Education Forum (Senegal, 26 – 28 April 2000) mandated UNESCO to co-ordinate this collective momentum while serving as the Secretariat, and its Director-General to convene annually a small and flexible group to monitor progress and mobilize additional support.
The main purpose of the GEM will be to critically assess progress towards EFA based on the Global Monitoring Report and regional and national reports, and to agree on tangible actions for follow-up. The outcomes of the GEM will guide the agenda of the High Level Forum (HLF).
