This document summarizes the research papers and panel discussions submitted or presented for a conference on planning and management of literacy and continuing education. The conference participants shared findings and important features in the planning and management of literacy and continuing education among participating countries, imparted knowledge and skills in project planning, management, and monitoring, and prepared action plans for implementing pilot projects in literacy and continuing education. This report is organized in five chapters. The first chapter summarizes papers on experiences in various Asian Pacific countries, as shared during plenary panels and roundtables. Chapter 2 presents a summary of theoretical inputs concerning the project cycle of literacy and continuing education and the major outcomes of the group work, based on field visits. Chapter 3 describes the workshop session on project formulation that was conducted to provide participants with practical experience in project conceptualization and formulation of project plans for literacy and continuing education. The fourth chapter summarizes presentations and outcomes of the group work on monitoring and evaluation, including concepts, methods, and tools of monitoring and evaluation. The last chapter presents actions plans and strategies for implementation of the activities proposed in earlier papers. Five appendixes contain a provisional annotated agenda, a provisional work schedule, a list of participants, the keynote presentation, and a synthesis of workshop evaluations. (KC)
