Education Financing Conference Coordination and Logistics

Vu le: Dec. 11, 2017 - - Sénégal
The Global Partnership for Education’s (GPE) Education Financing Conference (previously referred to as a replenishment conference) will gather developing and donor countries, multilateral organizations, civil society, private sector, and philanthropic foundations in Dakar on February 1st and 2nd, 2018. Co-hosted by Senegalese President Macky Sall and French President Emmanuel Macron, this will be the first time a donor and developing country co-host such an event, symbolizing the spirit of true partnership, which is the essence of the GPE. In the lead up to the conference, Plan and other civil society organizations have championed an intensive education financing campaign aimed at increases in domestic and donor financing to education. The GPE Education Financing Conference is widely recognized as an essential stepping stone to achieving SDG 4.

The conference is split into two formats over two days. The event being held on February 1st has been dubbed a “Partnership Platform” where GPE partners are invited to share ideas and showcase their work, in a format that maximises participation and enables partners to create an event on issues that matter most to them. The formal pledging proceedings of the conference will take place on February 2nd, where GPE partners, will make their formal financial pledges.

There are expected to be 1000 attendees at the conference including multilateral agencies, government leaders, young people, CSOs, donors and private sector representatives.
