In 2012, UNICEF decided to commission an independent evaluation of its basic education work in the region as part of a series of thematic multi-country evaluations framed around the organizations global and regional strategy.
The overall goal of this Multi-Country Evaluation was: (i) to assess the extent to which UNICEF's programme interventions contributed to results at impact level for children – in terms of reduction in the number of children out of school and improved quality of education - learning outcomes; and (ii) to generate learning on practices, innovations and models that can be shared throughout the region.
The Government of Turkey and the UNICEF Regional Office for Central and Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CEE/CIS) co-organized a Ministerial Conference on the theme of ‘including all children in quality learning’. The Conference was held in Istanbul from 10-13 December 2013.
