The Sixth International Conference on Adult Education (CONFINTEA VI), held in Brazil in December 2009, closed with the adoption of the Belém Framework for Action, which recorded the commitments of Member States and presented a strategic guide for the global development of adult learning and education from a lifelong learning perspective. The third Global Report on Adult Learning and Education (GRALE III), published in 2016, drew on survey data to evaluate progress made by countries in fulfilling the commitments made in Brazil, while also highlighting some of the contributions adult learning and education can make to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The CONFINTEA VI Mid-Term Review, in Suwon, Republic of Korea, in October 2017, took stock of progress made by Member States over the past eight years and looked ahead to GRALE IV in 2019.
The UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) in cooperation with the International Council of Adult Education (ICAE) commissioned and produced five regional reports for the Mid-Term Review. Each report examines progress in the particular region, exploring the contribution of key policy agreements and frameworks and offering recommendations in advance of CONFINTEA VII in 2021. All five reports are summarized in this publication.
