GPE: role and interaction with the EU and Belgium
The GPE Board of Directors is the supreme governing body of the partnership and sets its policies and strategies. It includes members from developing country governments and all development partners: donors, civil society organizations, private sector and foundations, and multilateral agencies and regional banks. The responsibilities of the Board include: reviewing annual objectives of the Partnership, mobilizing resources, monitoring financial resources and funding, advocating for the partnership, and overseeing the secretariat budget and work plan.
As the Belgian platform for education and development, Educaid.be considered this an opportune moment to organise a briefing session on the activities and functioning of the GPE, and the priorities and role of the European Union and Belgium with regard to this multilateral agency.

- Donatella Di Vozzo, Education Advisor, International Aid & Cooperation, Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development, People and Peace (Unit B4 – Culture, Education, Health), European Commission
- Valérie Carlier, Education Advisor, Social Development Unit (D2.3), DGD
The meeting will be chaired by Roméo Matsas, Advocacy Expert at Plan International Belgium and chair of the Educaid.be working group on education in the Belgian bilateral and multilateral cooperation.
