Resulting from a study that was comissioned as part of the Partnerships for Education (PfE) programme by UNESCO and the World Economic Forum Global Education Initiative, this book presents case studies of good practices including those of five GKP Members – Global eSchools and Communities Intiatives (GeSCI), Microsoft, Omar Dengo Foundation (FOD), Federacion Nacional de Cafeteros de Colombia-Comite de Cafeteros de Caldas (Coffee Growers Federation in Caldas) and World Bank Institute.

The World Economic Forum and UNESCO’s Partnerships for Education initiative was established in 2007 to identify and promote good practices in the implementation of Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships for Education (MPSE). One of the main findings of this review of the existing literature on such practices is that there is insufficient reporting of the successes and failures of these initiatives. The lack of sufficient monitoring and evaluation has been one of the reasons why there has been so much duplication of effort in creating pilot projects, and why many of these have failed satisfactorily to deliver on the expectations of those involved.

As a contribution to the overall objectives of the PfE initiative, members of the Technical Advisory Group of Partnerships for Education have provided empirical examples of existing partnerships, that are intended to support and supplement the conceptual analyses embodied in the review.

GKP is an Associate Partner of PfE and a representative of the Technical Advisory Group, whose members’ case studies listed below are featured in this book:
