Nairobi Recommendation on the Development of Adult Education


4 May 2012

The Committee on Conventions and Recommendations of the Executive Board of UNESCO monitors three Conventions and eleven Recommendations. One of latter is the 1976 Recommendation on the Development of Adult Education. The UNESCO General Conference 36C/Resolution 13 (2011) acknowledges the monitoring of the Belem Framework for Action and the triennial Global Report on Adult Learning and Education (GRALE) as the key instruments for following implementation of the Nairobi Recommendation. According to the Resolution, a Plan of Action for the review and update of this Recommendation should be submitted to the 189th meeting of the Executive Board of UNESCO in March 2012.

The Executive Board has adopted this Plan of Action, and an expert group will now be established to submit a preliminary study of the technical and legal aspects relating to the desirability of revising the Nairobi Recommendation to the Executive Board at its 191st session (2013).
