The Dakar Framework for Action

The World Education Forum (26-28 April 2000, Dakar) adopted the Dakar Framework for Action, Education for All: Meeting our Collective Commitments. In doing so, its participants reaffirmed the vision of the World Declaration on Education for All adopted ten years earlier (Jomtien, Thailand, 1990), annexed to this document.
The Dakar Framework for Action is based on the most extensive evaluation of education ever undertaken, the Education for All (EFA) 2000 Assessment.
The Dakar Framework for Action states that the ‘heart of EFA lies at country level’. It also affirms that ‘no countries seriously committed to education for all will be thwarted in their achievement of this goal by a lack of resources’.
