EFA Planning Guide: Southeast and East Asia. Follow-Up to the World Education Forum (Dakar, Senegal, April 2000).
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, Bangkok (Thailand). Principal Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific.
The Dakar Framework for Action, adopted at the 2000 World Education Forum, called upon governments to ensure that Education for All (EFA) goals are achieved by 2015. This EFA planning guide is designed as a working tool for educational planners, statisticians, and members of national EFA task forces. It provides practical advice to educational practitioners working at subnational level who have planning functions. It includes a computerized EFA Analysis and Projection Model on CD-ROM, developed by the Planning and Sector Analysis Unit of the Principal Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, part of the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. The model assists educational practitioners in assessing the resource requirements of the EFA plan's priorities and targets. The four target groups are children 0-6, children in primary and lower secondary school, out-of-school children and youths, and illiterate adults. The emphasis of the planning guide is on formal basic education for the second target group. The focus is on the methodology of planning resource requirements rather than content, which is developed by each country. Section 1 introduces the education planning principles and highlights the major steps in the planning process. Section 2 introduces the overall EFA plan preparation approach. Section 3 presents an approach for preparing the plan for formal basic education, required for the second target group. Section 4 presents an approach for preparing the plans for the first, third, and fourth target groups. Section 5 addresses issues of costs and financing for the plan preparation. Finally, section 6 provides an overview of data aspects. In addition to the model on CD-ROM and in booklet format, copies of the Dakar Framework for Action and the Asia and Pacific Regional Framework for Action are provided. A glossary is also supplied.
