Background to the theme of the seminar

Since 1997, the Korean Educational Development Institute (KEDI) and UNESCO Bangkok have co-organized annual seminars focusing on education planning and management issues that are high on the policy agenda in Asian countries. The Korean Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development has sponsored the seminar since 1999 within the framework of the Korean Funds-in-Trust and with technical and financial co-sponsorship from UNESCO Bangkok. The seminar brought together senior officials from Ministries of Education and researchers from Asian countries for an exchange of information, knowledge and know-how regarding priority areas in education planning and management. 

Themes such as Education Management Information System (EMIS) and international development assistance were covered in the past. Since 2002, the seminar has been devoted to themes related to the six EFA goals agreed upon by the international community at the World Education Forum. Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) was the seminar theme in 2002, followed by life skills in 2003, education quality in 2004, and secondary education in 2005. The 2006 topic concerned education finance with a special focus on financing national EFA plan implementation.
