This first annual report charts the progress made on pledges in the first year since publishing them and sets out recommendations for further action. It follows on from the British Government’s commitment earlier this year to increase UK spending on education to £8.5 billion between 2006-7 and 2015-16. It endorses the commitment in the July 2006 White Paper Eliminating world poverty: making governance work for the poor to support plans to get more girls into school and to develop a DFID action plan on gender equality.
