Government Education Spending Effectiveness and the Promise of Results Based Financing
November 07, 2018  ·  Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

A Three Course, Served Luncheon is included, Registration is required to attend.

Summary:  In 2015, many countries around the world signed up to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which included an ambitious set of targets for their education systems. Estimates have shown that globally an additional US$191 to US$311 billion will be needed annually to achieve these goals. While additional resources are certainly needed, experience has shown that mobilizing additional resources is no guarantee that education outcomes will improve. It will be necessary to strengthen the effectiveness and efficiency of education spending as well as increasing its magnitude if education systems are to be improved and the SDG goals achieved. The presentation will highlight recent trends in public education spending and show that recent increases have not translated into significantly better education outcomes. It will present findings from a new report that explores whether results-based financing can strengthen the link between education outcomes and spending.
