The Asia-Pacific Programme of Education for All (APPEAL), UNESCO, is a cooperative program designed to promote education for all in the region. Its principal aim is to promote primary education, literacy, and continuing education for all and particularly for disadvantaged groups. APPEAL/PROAP has instituted the project, Promotion of Basic Education and Lifelong Learning for Gender Equality through CLCs, to improve and strengthen basic education and lifelong learning for gender equality. The project will build upon the expertise and experience of community learning centers (CLCs), which have been providing non-formal education for over 3 years, with girls and women one of their target groups. CLCs provide a supportive atmosphere for learning and have helped improve the status of girls and women in their communities. Objectives of the technical workshop held in Indonesia in March 2001 were to: review the situation in the region regarding basic education and lifelong learning for gender equality; develop a framework for undertaking a pilot study on innovative strategies for basic education and lifelong learning for gender equality through CLCs in the region; and formulate an action plan for undertaking research. Attending the workshop were 23 participants from 13 countries implementing learning centers projects supported by UNESCO APPEAL and 11 observers from Indonesia. The 13 countries are Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam. Work groups participated in: presentations on concepts and requirements related to basic education, lifelong learning, and gender equality, and guidelines for sharing; undertook a field visit; and discussed how to carry out their research and reach their objectives. Annexes to this final report contain a schedule of work, list of participants, opening remarks, sharing country experience works groups, and guidelines for group discussion. (BT)
