This side-event was hosted by UNESCO’s GEM Report and the World Bank, titled 'Education on financing for inclusive education', and took place during the Global Education Summit.

The event was co-hosted with partners the International Disability and Development Consortium, International Disability Alliance, the Global Action on Disability Network, the Global Campaign for Education and with the support of the Global Partnership of Education.

The event highlights promising practices for inclusive financing, and promotes peer learning and discussion on how countries can strengthen education policies, sector plans and budgets for inclusive education and address gaps in data systems.

Featuring the voices of young persons with disabilities alongside education policymakers and education financing specialists from around the world, the event is a call to action for governments and the donor community to set a new vision for inclusive education financing in the aftermath of the Summit.
