Recommitting to literacy to face African challenges (Report Bamako Conference Sept. 2007)

  • September 2008

The African Regional Conference in Support of Global Literacy was held from 10 to 12 September 2007 in Bamako, Mali. It was a high-level advocacy initiative designed to promote literacy at the national, regional and international levels, contribute towards achieving one of the major Education for All goals, and secure the foundation for lifelong learning. It is one of a series of six Regional Conferences worldwide, organized by UNESCO within the framework of Education for All (EFA), the United Nations Literacy Decade (UNLD) and UNESCO‘s Literacy Initiative for Empowerment (LIFE). The ultimate aims of the Regional Conferences in Support of Global Literacy are to assist countries in addressing their literacy challenges, to have a real and measurable impact on the lives of their populations, and ultimately to contribute towards sustainable human development and poverty eradication. The conferences build on and follow up the work started at the White House Conference on Global Literacy in September 2006, hosted by Mrs. Laura Bush, First Lady of the United States of America and UNESCO Honorary Ambassador for the UNLD.
