The Belém Framework for Action (BFA) contains commitments of Member States to develop policies and programmes for adult learning and education, as well as to strengthen governance, to increase funding, to broaden participation, to improve quality, and to monitor and report on progress. UIL has been assigned the task of coordinating the monitoring process at a global level, in cooperation with the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), and to support the implementation of the BFA.
Through the follow-up process to CONFINTEA VI, UIL provides a platform for coordinated action with relevant stakeholders. This includes regional and sub-regional follow-up meetings and conferences, regional cooperation projects, and international exchange through various media and networks. In this fifth Follow-up Bulletin, I would like to encourage readers to continue supporting the reporting process, by providing us with relevant information on the activities that have been undertaken in your country or region to implement the BFA.
