ABOUT THE DATA

This tool provides World Bank Group financial contributions to education (USD $ million) from fiscal year 2000 to 2018. The World Bank Group fiscal year (FY) begins on July 1, and ends on June 30. The data include IBRD/IDA financing and Recipient-Executed Grants that support education in the six official regions (Africa, East Asia and Pacific, Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, and South Asia). This includes funds for education components in all projects managed by all Global Practices.

Projects coded according to the Bank’s eight education subsectors (adult literacy/non-formal education, pre-primary education, primary education, secondary education, tertiary education, vocational training, general education sector and public administration-education) are regrouped into three main areas (basic education, secondary/vocational education, and tertiary education) to better communicate World Bank Group education support.
