Matoko and a presentation of the 2019 GEM Report by Senior Policy Analyst Anna Cristina D'Addio. A high-level panel with Ministers of Education from participating BRICE countries, donor governments and civil society representatives will explore promising practices in ensuring safe, quality education for all learners.
