Number of parallel implementation units, education sector

Number of parallel implementation units (PIUs) in the education sector, as reported by the development donors. A project implementation unit (PIU) is parallel when it is created and operates outside existing country institutional and administrative structures at the behest of a donor. This is part of the 2011 Monitoring Exercise on Development Effectiveness in the Education Sector, an unprecedented picture of aid effectiveness in the education sector that can be used as the basis for in-country dialogue and debate going forward. This information looks at how education aid is delivered and managed by development partners and governments.
