Literacy: Launch of Global LIFE Mid-term Evaluation Report 2006-2011: Looking Forward with LIFE
14 February 2012

The global mid-term evaluation report on UNESCO´s Literacy Initiative for Empowerment (LIFE, 2006-2015), produced by UIL on the basis of national and regional mid-term evaluation processes and reports, is now available online. It seeks to contribute to the effective implementation of the initiative through to 2015. The report shows mixed results with regard to progress in literacy. The majority of the 35 LIFE countries recorded an increase in adult literacy rates - by on average 3.1 percentage points compared to the global average of 1.9 percentage points over the period 1995-2004 to 2005-2009. Stakeholders involved in the evaluation process conducted in 2010 and 2011 believe that LIFE is an important framework that can boost their literacy efforts.
