The follow-up to the Sixth International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VI), held in Belém, Brazil in December 2009, was high on UIL’s agenda in 2010. Following the man-date given to the Institute by UNESCO Member States in the Belém Framework for Action, UNESCO and UIL are committed to coordinating the monitoring of the implementation of the recommendations spelled out in the document. A follow-up strategy was produced, which was discussed during the first meeting of the CONFINTEA Advisory Group, held at UIL in March. As an important pillar of this follow-up, the Institute is currently in the process of developing a set of comparable indicators for literacy and adult education to monitor the implementation of these components of the Belém Framework for Action by Member States. In cooperation with the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) an Overall Monitoring Strategy and a Monitoring Matrix were drafted. An international online con-sultation forum was held to obtain feedback on these tools before their further development by an international expert meeting in January 2011 prior to their validation, approval and use by Member States and their partners.
