In addition to mobilizing resources for basic education our replenishment campaign aims to garner policy commitments to fulfill our mission to improve education equity and quality for children around the world.
The Global Partnership not only supports the implementation of national education systems, but also targets critical areas which need explicit focus. In that sense we encourage our partners to make policy commitments to:
In addition, we seeks to incentivize greater aid effectiveness in education by asking donors to commit to greater aid predictability, align aid with national education plans, improve harmonization, and increase the focus of aid on basic education.
Our Partners’ Policy Commitments
At the Pledging Conference in Copenhagen in November 2011, our partners including donors, developing countries, civil society, the private sector and the teaching profession made policy commitments for 2011-14 to support the Partnership’s goals.
Developing country partners committed to improving education equity and quality through efforts to reform school curricula; recruit, train and support new teachers; increase access to early childhood care and education; increase gender-specific interventions; construct classrooms and increase the supply, relevance and use of school materials; improve interventions targeting out-of-school children, implement national assessments and improve education governance.

Donor partners committed to improving their aid effectiveness by using the most aligned modalities, reducing the use of parallel projects, improving coordination and undertaking joint sector work. Donors also committed to increasing their focus on gender equality, providing greater support for conflict-affected and fragile states, maximizing results by focusing on early learning achievement, and scaling up support for out-of-school children.

Civil society, the private sector, private foundations, and the teaching profession committed to contributing to the Education for All movement, including working with communities to advocate for education rights, monitoring education sector reform, increasing awareness of gender equality issues, child labor, child marriage and early childhood development and developing policies to overcome the worst barriers to high-equity, high-quality education. In addition, several partners in these constituencies will also increase their own programming to provide high quality training for teachers, scale up efforts in conflict-affected and fragile states and expand literacy training around the world.

Throughout our replenishment campaign we will continue to solicit commitments from our partners and ensure that these policies translate into concrete results for children.
We will also work with our partners to track and monitor the delivery of these commitments, including through an annual monitoring report outlining progress made to date.
