GCE position on IFFEd

IFFEd: GCE updated position

The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) has expressed a number of concerns about the International Finance Facility for Education (IFFEd) (see Global Campaign for Education response to IFFEd).  These have not been clearly addressed and so, on the eve of the UN General Assembly we are re-asserting four core concerns about IFFEd which we believe still need to be addressed: Concerns about rising debt and debt vulnerability of LMICs.  Concerns about fragmentation of international education financing in different mechanisms. Concerns about empowering the banks and placing too much influence in one institution. Concerns about the distraction of efforts from domestic ...

HLPF 2019 Spotlight reports: Looking at 2030

HLPF 2019 Spotlight reports: Looking at 2030

All around the world members of our network worked on Spotlight reports for the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) to assess the status of the Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4) on education in their countries or regions. Beyond the questioning around civil society's relevance during HLPF, preparing spotlight reports is a useful exercise for civil society to better  challenge their governments' actions towards achieving SDG4 and provide evidence-based policy recommendations. Though the common agreement is that there is still a long way to go to achieve free, quality, inclusive public education for all, countries and CSOs face specific challenges that ...

Using Evidence to Drive Change

Using Evidence to Drive Change

Case examples from the Civil Society Education Fund programme It is said that every dollar spent on research is worth ten spent on lobbying, and that evidence works as fuel for advocacy.  During 2016 and 2017, 38 national coalitions worked on research for advocacy, and the results are clear: the use of relevant documentation, credible research, data collection and evidence building are key to inform education policy. From this important body of work, we selected  case examples from 11 coalitions in Africa (Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Malawi, Sierra Leone), Asia (Indonesia, Philippines), Eastern Europe and the Middle East (Moldova, ...

From loud noises to louder actions: the push to achieve more and better education financing after the 72nd UN General Assembly

From loud noises to louder actions: the push to achieve more and better education financing after the 72nd UN General Assembly

Education has been the focus of many high-level UN events, but this year’s UN General Assembly truly put the spotlight on education – and particularly on the financing of quality, inclusive, equitable, and free education. GCE and its members have long fought to deliver financing at national and international levels, and this year’s shift by the UN to explicitly focus on financing to strengthen public education systems was welcome – and long overdue. Civil society has been consistent in the message – now widely acknowledged – that education is a foundational right, and SDG 4 underpins the full sustainable development agenda: failing ...
