The Education Finance Playbook – Supplemental Technical Guide for Donors

The Education Playbook Supplemental Technical Guide for Donors provides additional information about the main multilateral providers of development finance in the education sector. This guide provides an insight into where the money is put in these institutions and is a tool for policy makers to help inform allocation decisions in their overall education development financing portfolio.


This Supplemental Technical Guide for Donors supports the information in the Education Finance Playbook, which demonstrates that the current strategy for funding education will leave hundreds of millions of children behind unless we act differently – starting now. It outlines the scale of the education crisis, the current status of funding and the price tag needed to put the world on course to provide quality education to every child. It maps the global education architecture and identifies the relative importance of various funds as well as their efficiency in delivering money to children’s education.
