EU should hand over education funds to WB

24 July 2002

The GCE held a meeting 29 May in Brussels on the role of the EU in delivering the international education goals, bringing together Education Ministers from Niger, Guatemala and Bangladesh, civil society representatives and donors. Evelyn Herfkens, Netherlands Minister for Development Cooperation, maintained that the best thing the EU could do was hand over its available resources for education to the World Bank. This view was challenged by many, including the Bank itself. The EC representative emphasised the need for donor harmonisation and a common pool approach.
