Past Event

Technical Meeting on National Education Accounts

Summary

On July 28, the Center for Universal Education hosted a consultation on the strategies behind, and practical implementation of, national education accounts (NEAs). NEAs are a tool for measuring, analyzing, and reporting expenditures on education from a multitude of sources within a country. They offer powerful information for policymakers and other stakeholders in education, including civil society, and they can enhance transparency and accountability.

Representatives from the Education for All-Fast Track Initiative, UNESCO, USAID, World Bank, and implementing partners gave presentations on education financing and Jacques van der Gaag moderated the discussion.
