Second Global Report on Adult Learning and Education


The second Global Report on Adult Learning and Education is based principally on 141 national progress reports submitted by UNESCO Member States. Its objective is to review the implementation of the recommendations made by governments at the Sixth International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VI) in Belém in December 2009. The Report provides an opportunity for all stakeholders to assess progress in adult education vis-à-vis the recommendations contained in the outcome document of CONFINTEA VI, the Belém Framework for Action. This second Global Report has as its special theme “Rethinking literacy”. UNESCO hopes that this will contribute to the debate on how to strengthen literacy efforts, and help to position literacy as the foundation for lifelong learning. PDF
