The Charlevoix Declaration is a commitment from the Leaders of the G7 to work towards inclusive, quality, equitable education for girls, adolescent girls, and women in developing countries and crisis contexts.
The Charlevoix Declaration on Quality Education for Girls, Adolescent Girls and Women in Developing Countries represents a joint effort from the Leaders of G7 countries to step up for girls and women in conflict and crisis contexts. Focusing both on dismantling the barriers to education and improving the quality of education, the G7 have committed to promote and improve learning outcomes for both refugees and host communities, while also working to reduce the time children and youth, especially girls, are out of school as a result of conflict and displacement.
To support the implementation of the Charlevoix Declaration, Canada also led the mobilization of CDN $3.8+ billion. With contributions from the World Bank, the European Union, Japan, Germany, and the United Kingdom, this initiative represents the single largest investment in education for girls in conflict and crisis settings.
