Worrying impact of global economic crisis on Pacific education

A international conference on the impact of the economic crisis on the Pacific has been in underway in Port Vila, Vanuatu, this week. A key theme is the impact on Pacific education, where the crisis has affected both the quality of and access to education -- two key areas which OLPC seeks to address. The conference has been looking at evidence-based investment in education, early childhood development and child protection.
The website has many policy resources available for download including this excellent overview of the issues facing Pacific educators, prepared by Helen Tavola for the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat.
