I. Background
Since 2002, the Education for All Global Monitoring Report (GMR) has been an authoritative, analytical, evidence-based report monitoring progress towards the Education for All (EFA) goals, and education-related Millennium Development Goals. Developed by an independent team and published annually by UNESCO, the GMR assessed the extent to which countries met their commitments to international education targets, and proposed policies and strategies to accelerate progress. The Report is widely recognized as an indispensable reference tool for education leaders and in global education policy circles. (
In 2015, the mandate of the newly named Global Education Monitoring Report (GEM Report) was renewed and confirmed in the World Education Forum's Incheon Declaration (May) and in the Education 2030 Framework for Action (October). The latter states: “The GEM Report will be the mechanism for monitoring and reporting on SDG 4 and on education in the other SDGs, with due regard to the global mechanism to be established to monitor and review the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It will also report on the implementation of national and international strategies to help hold all relevant partners to account for their commitments as part of the overall SDG follow-up and review.”
The first report in the GEM Report series will not only establish a framework for following up, reviewing and monitoring education policy priorities and key financing patterns and challenges; it will also explore the interrelationship of education and various sustainable development goals. Under the overarching theme of ‘Education, sustainability and the post-2015 development agenda’, the 2016 GEM Report will critically assess evidence to determine which education strategies, policies, and programmes are most effectively linked to the economic, social, environmental and political priorities of the sustainable development agenda. The second GEM Report, currently under development, will highlight topics related to accountability and transparency in education.
