Third Global Report on Adult Learning and Education - National Reports

Of the 195 UNESCO Member States, 139 participated in the survey and collected data which have been used in this Report to provide analyses and derive conclusions. This participation rate shows the interest of countries to monitor progress in adult learning and education. The data and the information also make it possible to monitor trends over time’, Arne Carlsen, Director of the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning.

Based on its experiences of GRALE I and GRALE II, the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) developed a simple monitoring survey for GRALE III in consultation with the UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS), the UNESCO Global Education Monitoring Report team and external partners such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Labour Organization (IL), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), as well as academic experts in the field of Adult Learning and Education. Bringing these partners together ensured that existing data sources – for instance UIS data on literacy – were drawn on to devise 75 questions covering the five areas of action outlined in the Belém Framework for Action, namely: policy; governance; financing; participation, inclusion and equity; and quality. The survey questionnaire was available online and was translated into the six UN languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish).
