In Doha, Director-General discusses Emergency Education Initiative with HH Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser

They expressed hope that this emergency initiative  will be supported
also by other donors and will be implemented in 2012 - 2015 in order to contribute to the realization of UNESCO's main strategic objectives. The emergency initiative will support the programme and budget adopted by the 36th General Conference, in particular the reinforcement of leadership for Education for All, through advocacy, partnership and monitoring, with a special emphasis on girls and women. Concerted attention will be placed on the least developed countries, which are furthest away from reaching the Education for All goals.
