Fast Track Initiative: Building a Global Compact for Education. Education Notes
Human Development Network Education
This note series is intended to summarize lessons learned and key policy findings on the World Bank's work in education. "Fast Track Initiative" ("FTI") was launched in 2002 as a partnership between donor and developing countries to accelerate progress towards the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of universal primary education. "FTI" is built on mutual commitments: (1) partner countries have agreed to give priority to primary education and to develop sound national education plans; and (2) donors have agreed to increase support in a transparent, coordinated manner. The "FTI" donor partners help countries to develop their own strategies to achieve universal completion of quality primary education. The "FTI" process is part of the development of comprehensive sector strategies built on broad-based consultation and medium term operational plans and budgets. "FTI" partners have created the Education Program Development Trust Fund (EPDF) to strengthen leadership capacity and program quality. (Contains 5 boxes.) [This report was produced by the World Bank's Education Advisory Service and was authored by "FTI" Secretariat, 2005.]
