ACP - multi-country cooperation - Education

Education is a key vector of development in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) nations, having the potential to lift future generations out of poverty.

A number of initiatives for all ACP countries are helping to meet the 2015 Millennium Development Goals on education – notably universal primary education for girls and boys – and advance the pursuit of the agenda of the ‘Education for All initiative’, a global movement launched at the World Conference on Education for All in 1990.

Higher education and research are areas that directly benefit from multi-country cooperation. It has the advantage of enabling significant economies of scale, in particular in ACP countries with small populations or scarce human resources, and of enhancing collaboration between universities.
