Oxfam Briefing Paper: Education for All ? No More Broken Promises

Oxfam is calling on the world's finance and development ministers to provide the necessary funding and timetable for their promised education action plan.

In April, the world’s Finance and Development Ministers promised “to provide the necessary additional domestic and external resources” to get every child into school by 2015. They "strongly endorsed" an Action Plan to "make primary education a reality for all children." At the heart of this Plan is a fast-track initiative to coordinate additional aid to developing countries that adopt policies to deliver Education for All.

Oxfam is urging development and finance ministers to fulfill those promises by:

  • Committing additional annual financing of $5 billion to implement the action plan; and

  • Agreeing a timetable to expand the fast track list beyond the initial 18 countries.
