Transparency needed for education in Pakistan
At present, only 66% of education-commited aid is reaching Pakistan’s education system. Reasons for this include, ‘meagre allocation of resources, little focus of multinationals on education, gaps in commitments and actual disbursements, strict aid conditionalities, and lack of implementation and transparency mechanisms.’
Mohammad Muntasim Tanvir is the Campaign Coordinator at Asia South Pacific Association for Basic & Adult Education (ASPBAE) – a network of 200 organisations working in 36 countries, articulates the need for a different approach, "The aid should be monitored through strong accountability measures and should be used in a harmonised process for long term and sustainable projects with full participation from civil society in its design, implementation and monitoring.”
