Earlier this year, UNESCO held a high-level segment of its Global Education Meeting aimed at galvanizing political commitment towards mobilizing investment in education. The goal was to encourage countries to develop strong domestic systems to fund education.

My guest today is Borhene Chakroun, Director for Policies and Lifelong Learning Systems at UNESCO. He has been working with UNESCO to spearhead the effort to bring conversations about financing education to the highest levels of the international community.
