UNLD Mid-Decade Review

Halfway through the United Nations Literacy Decade (UNLD) 2003-2012, UNESCO is conducting a review of progress. The review is a key opportunity to take stock and set a clear direction for the promotion of literacy between 2007 and 2012 in all key areas of the UNLD Plan of Action.

Taking place during 2007 and 2008, the review will use the 2006 Education for All Global Monitoring Report as a benchmark. It will also use the momentum generated from the Regional Conferences to promote stronger policies and greater investment in literacy. The review aims to identify concrete actions for the second half of the Decade.

UNESCO has set up a UNLD Experts’ Group which advises on the further development of the UN Literacy Decade as well as on other literacy related matters. The group will hold its next meeting in June 2008.

The results of the mid-decade review will be submitted to the UN General Assembly in 2008.
