In addition,UNESCO conducted a comprehensive review in February 2015 in Tuvalu to track progress towards achievingthe six EFA goals.
Tuvalu contributed to the set of global assessments undertaken by UNESCO to help frame the vision for the post-2015 agenda. This agenda was presented to over 190 Member States attending the 37th session of UNESCO’s General Conference. Along with the EFA Global Monitoring Report, these country assessments were also shared at a global education forum in Korea in 2015 and fed into the definition of the new global education agenda. The post-2015 agenda will be a useful resource for countries like Tuvalu as it embarks onevidence-based policy and planning, monitoring, evaluation and reporting of its new sector plan.
