This is an updated, adapted, and abridged version of a 2016 publication produced by Global Campaign
for Education (GCE), ActionAid International (AAI), and Education International (EI) - “Financing Matters: A Toolkit on Domestic Financing for Education.” That toolkit aimed to support civil society to advocate and campaign for sufficient financing to enact the fourth Sustainable Development Goal and to secure the right to education.

This updated version has been adapted at the midpoint of the SDGs against a backdrop of a world that has significantly changed since the first edition. It also sets out a bolder vision for financing education, influenced by recent agreements at the UN Transforming Education Summit, rooted in ensuring financing can support the delivery of the right to education and applying stronger decolonising financing lens onto the redrafting of the toolkit.
