The Task Force is a voluntary global alliance of partners, and its achievements are the result of contributions from all its members. The mission of the Task Force is to advocate for, and facilitates the coordination of international efforts to provide sufficient numbers of well qualified teachers to achieve EFA goals (until 2015) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Task Force participates in and supports teacher development initiatives of policy-making and monitoring, knowledge production and resourcing.
