Alice Albright is in Mozambique this week and attended part of the government’s annual education sector review meeting.

Such meetings are an opportunity to assess progress against the government’s strategy and allow partners to have an honest conversation about challenges and solutions in the education sector.

The reviews are a critical instrument contributing to effective and inclusive policy dialogue, one of the objectives of GPE’s strategy for 2016-2020.

For the past years, the Global Partnership for Education has actively supported partner countries in conducting efficient joint sector reviews, serving as transparent forums that subscribe to the principle of mutual accountability. 

Mozambique, a GPE partner since 2003, was one of the first countries to apply for an implementation grant under GPE’s new performance-based funding model. The country was allocated US$57.9 million from GPE for 2015-2018 aiming at enhancing the quality of learning and service delivery.
