Financing education: Redesigning national strategies and the global aid architecture
A Report from the International Working Group on Education (IWGE)
The International Working Group on Education (IWGE) is an informal network of aid agencies and foundations. Since its inception in 1972 it has provided a forum for donor agencies to exchange information and work closely together on education issues. The IWGE is guided by a Planning Committee, whose members are the Aga Khan Foundation, Sida, UNESCO, UNICEF, USAID and the World Bank. Its Secretariat, the International Institute for Educational Planning (IIEP), coordinates the Group’s activities.
This Report provides an overview of the presentations, discussions and recommendations of the last IWGE meeting held in Stockholm, Sweden in June 2010. Among the issues discussed were: trends in the financing of education; the possibilities of achieving a better balance through intra-sectoral re-allocation of resources; the role of education aid in financing education; the implications of the financial crisis on educational development; national strategies; and the global aid architecture.
