11th Regional Meeting of National EFA Coordinators

18-20 November 2010
Bangkok, Thailand

This meeting is aimed at facilitating information exchange among countries on EFA progress, in particular reaching the unreached and marginalized in education as a way of ensuring success in meeting the EFA goals. The meeting will also be a venue to identify the major challenges the region is facing towards achieving the EFA goals and reflect on challenges beyond 2015.

Moreover, the meeting will serve as a forum to discuss and prepare countries and EFA partners in the region on planning an assessment of EFA progress and gaps by 2015 through the sharing of findings from the evaluation of the EFA Mid-Decade Assessment and the EFA Mid-Term Review process. Through this meeting, UNESCO Bangkok/UIS and UNICEF will update countries on the preparation of End-of-Decade notes on EFA progress and get country inputs to the notes.

The UIS-AIMS and APPEAL Units of UNESCO Bangkok are the main meeting organizers  on behalf of the UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education. The meeting is also organized in close collaboration with the Regional TWG on EFA which is co-chaired by UNICEF. For inquiries about the meeting, please contact efa.bgk[at]
