The Paris Declaration in the education sector: A survey of 10 FTI endorsed countries

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Fast Track Initiative (FTI) is a global partnership between donors and developing countries to accelerate progress toward the Millennium Development Goal of universal primary education by 2015. All low-income countries which demonstrate serious commitment to achieving universal primary completion can receive support from the FTI.

The FTI seeks to mobilize both domestic and external funding in ways that encourage demand-driven approaches, aligned with countriesÂ’ own planning processes, and harmonized across donors if alignment is not feasible. As such, the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, approved in 2005, is a practical blueprint for development aid to be provided in more efficient and effective ways to better meet the needs of developing countries. The FTI Secretariat conducted an education sector survey of the Paris Indicators in 10 FTI endorsed countries: Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Honduras, Madagascar, Mauritania, Mozambique, Nicaragua, and Rwanda.

The results indicate substantial progress on the majority of the Paris Indicators in most of the FTI surveyed countries. In several countries, the education sector performs significantly better than the overall national scores. The FTI is regarded as a possible model for other sectors in putting Paris Declaration principles into practice in one of the largest spending sectors.
