Backroom efforts are helping to convince Gulf countries to support humanitarian aid through the UN system and support priorities including education, EU commissioner Christos Stylianides has told EURACTIV.
The French government recently unveiled a plan to reach its goal of allocating 0.55% of gross national income to development aid by 2022, but French development aid will only start increasing from 2020. EURACTIV.fr reports.
France announces a €200 million allocation for education during the Conference of the Global Partnership for Education. Funding for education will well and truly be France’s priority in terms of development aid for the next few years. EURACTIV.fr reports
After many years of being passed over in silence, education aid is now gaining importance on the international agenda. The conference of the Global Partnership for Education on 1 and 2 February will be a key event. EURACTIV.fr reports
