Description

The Financing Gap and the Challenges of achieving the goals for Women and Girls' Education - A Panel Conversation

At the recent G20 meeting, Julia Gillard, GPE Chair, observed that "education financing is down." This is alarming when 61 million girls continue to miss out on primary and lower-secondary school and 758 million adults lack any literacy skills; two-thirds of whom are women. If education is to contribute to addressing the urgent issues of poverty, conflict and climate change - what can be done to mobilise the will and resources needed to ensure the right of every person access to high quality affordable education and training ? Join us in a conversation that examines the causes and explores possible ways forward.


Panel:


  • Ms Alice Albright, Chief Executive Officer, Global Partnership for Education (GPE)

  • Name, Position, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade

  • Name, Position, EU Delegation

  • Ms. Susan Hopgood, President, Education International


Co-organised by
