star this property answer text <p>We have not received a request from the Greek government for assistance. If we do, we will assess this on the basis of need. Greece is not eligible to receive Official Development Assistance as it has a GNI per capita of around $22,000. The maximum GNI per capita for a country to be ODA eligible is around $13,000. In the short to medium term it is therefore unlikely we could provide support through the aid budget.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The independent evaluations were conducted by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the delivery agency of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, as part of their regular reporting to the National Education Development Partners Group (NEDPG) in Pakistan.</p><p>The NEDPG, which consists of both bilateral and multilateral donors, including the UK, UNESCO, UNICEF, The World Bank, the US, Germany and Australia, has prioritised scrutiny of the curriculum in its dialogue with the government of Pakistan. There is an implicit set of internationally agreed professional norms and standards for all aspects of education, set through the UNESCO Annual Global Monitoring Reports against which conclusions can be drawn.</p><p>While GIZ has led evaluation on behalf of the Partners Group, other members carry out reviews of the education sector, including curriculum quality, and these are pooled and used by all. In addition, DFID staff scrutinise the curriculum and its implementation as part of regular monitoring of the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa education programmes.</p>
