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.
