These guidelines introduce the partnership compact and set out how to consider and agree on a priority reform that can spur education system transformation.
The compact is a road map to transformation. It articulates how a GPE partner country intends to work with others around a priority reform with the potential to catalyze systemwide change.The partner country leads and develops its compact with the support of an inclusive local education group.
The partnership compact defines mutual accountability and focuses all partners on achievement of the priority reform. It is shared with the GPE Board, which uses it as a basis for decision making for GPE funding.
GPE recommends using the partnership compact as a framework for aligning all types of funding support, including GPE grants, and showing how funding can be best combined and coordinated for greatest effect.
