Haiti - Education: Nesmy Manigat will participate to the World Education Forum 2015 (WEF)
Nesmy Manigat, the Minister of National Education, has the head of a delegation including Magalie Georges, the General Secretary of the National Confederation of Haitian Educators (CNEH) and Georges Mérisier, former Minister of Education will participate from 19 to 22 May in Incheon (Republic of Korea) to the World Education Forum 2015 (WEF), organized by UNESCO and the Republic of Korea, with the assistance of the World Bank (WB), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), UN Women, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) , the United Nations refugee agency and UNICEF.

The opportunity for the Haitian delegation to share with major stakeholders in education, experiences and action plans to improve its education system and to guide and support the implementation of the future agenda for the education in Haiti.

Recall that since 2000, the year 2015 has emerged as the horizon toward which the world projects its aspirations to achieve the Education for All and Millennium Development Goals. While accelerating efforts to achieve these goals, the United Nations has been mobilizing the world to define the post-2015 development agenda. In this process, UNESCO and UNICEF have been working with a wide array of stakeholders to reflect on education beyond 2015.

So far have indicated that the direction of the post-2015 education agenda is to be anchored in a lifelong and sector-wide perspective, addressing access and results, equity and quality for all – children, youth and adults - from early childhood care and education to higher education and adult learning, and in formal, non-formal and informal learning.

UNESCO’s General Conference, which met in November 2013, also committed itself to promote an overarching goal for education "based upon key principles of access, equity, quality, in the perspective of lifelong learning" as part of the future global development agenda.

Recall that there is almost a quarter century, the Education for All Movement (EFA) took birth in Jomtien, Thailand. Delegates from around the world signed the EFA Declaration, a historic commitment to "meet the basic learning needs of all" by the universalization of primary education and reducing illiteracy rates.

Ten years later, in 2000, the 6 EFA goals which cover all aspects of basic education from pre-school education and adult literacy, quality of education, were formalized at the World Education Forum in Dakar where the deadline for achieving these goals was set in 2015.
