Financing for learning: 3 key takeaways

Video of the week

Yesterday, GPE Board Chair Julia Gillard, joined Gordon Brown of the Education Commission, Anthony Lake of UNICEF, and the former President of Tanzania Jakaya Kikwete, at the Center for Global Development to launch the GPE Replenishment 2020 Case for Investment and discuss how to address the financing gap that is keeping 263 million children and youth out of school.

All of the speakers, each invited to represent a key answer to the problem: GPE, the proposed International Financing Facility for Education (IFFed), Education Cannot Wait, and national governments, called attention to the need for complementary and innovative financing solutions. 

Here are 3 more messages that resonated with everyone in the room, and those that tuned in online.

1. The world is facing a learning crisis and business as usual is not enough

2. Systems, systems, systems

3. The more (aligned) support the better
