RISE announces increased financial support for its research

The UK's Department for International Development (DFID) has pledged increased support for Research on Improving Systems of Education (RISE) as part of the UK government’s larger programme to tackle the global learning crisis and achieve the education global goals. 

Through the financial backing and partnership building of DFID, RISE will now be able to extend beyond the programme’s existing six research countries in Ethiopia, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Tanzania, and Vietnam to increase the evidence base to see what works, and what doesn’t, in education system reform. 

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will also join DFID and Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) in a partnership to support education systems research through RISE.
