This compendium summarizes the presentations and debates of participants in the international seminar on Implementing Education for All: Teacher and Resource Management in the Context of Decentralization, held in Hyderabad (India), 6–8 January 2005. Organized by UNESCO, with assistance from the Administrative Staff College of India, Hyderabad, and the National Institute for Educational Planning and Administration, New Delhi, the seminar was attended by over fifty participants, including two national representatives from each of the E-9 countries as well as Mozambique, which was included for the lessons that can be imparted by a successful Fast Track Initiative country. Five of the ten national reports are included in this volume, together with one of the two thematic papers presented on alternative approaches to reaching marginalized populations in decentralized contexts. An introduction to the issues is followed by a synthesis paper across all the national reports, commissioned for the seminar, to highlight issues, lessons and remaining challenges of the implementation of Education for All in the E-9 set of large, populous countries. The volume concludes with the proceedings of the seminar, the conclusions reached and the follow-up activities identified. The whole set of papers can be accessed on the UNESCO website (http://www.unesco.org/education/eps under the heading ‘Experience Sharing’), and some of the individual national reports will be published separately. Annex 1 sets out the guidelines given for the preparation of the national reports and Annex 2 the seminar programme itself.
