Who is spending what on the millennium development goals?
11 October - Drawing on the skills gained from monitoring government budgets in over 70 countries, Government Spending Watch (GSW) helped develop a toolkit on Domestic Financing for Education produced by the Global Campaign for Education (GCE) in collaboration with ActionAid International (AAI) and Education International (EI).
As the world embarks on the difficult task of putting into action the newly agreed SDG 4, and the accompanying Education 2030 Framework for Action (FFA), this toolkit aims to support CSOs and education activists across low- and middle-income countries to advocate and campaign on issues related to financing for education.The SDG 4 and the FFA contain collective commitments to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all by 2030 - which will require ambitious new financing commitments to meet this goal.
The toolkit, based on 4 modules, is adaptable to different contexts, and aims to be as broad-based in its scope as possible. The toolkit can be used in its entirety, but each module is also designed so that they can be used as a standalone product, depending on experience, knowledge, context or interest.
