Global Report of Adult Learning and Education - GRALE
There is still no common understanding of how to approach literacy as a lifelong learning process, particularly how to define and measure it. This is evident in the second Global Report on Adult Learning and Education (GRALE II), recently published by the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning.
As the Belém Framework for Action includes the recommendation to publish an updated version of GRALE every three years, the 2012 issue is currently under preparation.
UNESCO member states have been asked in autumn 2011 by way of a reporting template to produce national reports on the development of adult education
National Reports 2009 Africa Arab States Asia and the Pacific Europe, North America and Israel Latin America and the Caribbean
The first-ever Global Report on Adult Learning and Education is based on 154 National Reports submitted by UNESCO Member States on the state of adult learning and education.
CONFINTEA VI was preceded by five Regional Preparatory Conferences, whose programmes were designed in relation to the overall thematic focus and adapted to the respective regional contexts.
