EFA Goal 1: Early childhood care and education (Asia-Pacific End of Decade Notes on Education for All)

The End of Decade Notes on Education for All: Goal 1 - Early Childhood Care and Education covers EFA goal 1: Expanding and improving comprehensive early childhood care and education, especially for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children. It is the first in a series of six Asia-Pacific End of Decade Notes on Education for All (EDN).

The EDN present a review of regional and national progress toward the six EFA goals, take stock of the progress, persisting issues and remaining challenges in achieving the goals, and highlight examples of innovative policy reforms and strategies, particularly those aimed at reducing disparities in access to and quality of education. The EDN also emphasize the policy, capacity and governance gaps to be addressed in order to achieve EFA goals in the region. The six reports build on the findings of the Asia-Pacific EFA Mid-Decade Assessment (2006–2008), which examined EFA progress and gaps at the mid-way point of the 2000–2010 decade.
