Exchange of best practices at national and transcontinental

African civil society organisations possess valuable
knowledge of realities on the ground and legitimacy
in contributing to the design of policies and practices

space to play their role. Donors must commit greater
resources to support their valuable efforts.
Achieving education for all in a comprehensive and sustainable
manner requires that governments take the lead in addressing

fundamental role to play in raising attention on the
issue and making suggestions. Only a sustained and constructive
dialogue, including civil control of budgetary allocations
can bring all stakeholders to elaborate long-lasting,
appropriate and legitimate solutions.
