United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The INNOV database was created as part of a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) program to collect, analyze and promote successful basic education projects in the developing world, and this report lists innovations in the field. It is divided into sections of project reports in three major geographical regions: (1) Africa; (2) Asia; and (3) Latin America and the Caribbean. From within these areas, a total of 37 countries are represented. Each project was designed to combat educational problems such as access to education, adult literacy, curriculum development, disadvantaged groups, educational quality, rural areas, and teacher education. Eighty-one reports are presented, and all entries include the project's title, country, type, main educational problems tackled, target groups, objectives, information on learners, responsible body, address, manager, contact person, working languages, date of creation, duration, funding sources, description, background, staffing, policy commitment/support, evaluations, and sources. Some entries also provide cost data, plans for going to scale, weakness/risk factors, impact, and project publications. (MAS)
