A socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions, congress, exhibitions, business, social and sporting, public, and cultural events.

The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 159 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Innovative Financing and Partnerships for Education
5 June 2021

According to a recent joint World Bank — UNESCO report, «despite additional funding needs, two-thirds of low- and lower-middle-income countries have, in fact, cut their public education budgets since the onset of the pandemic.» While these cuts are not as large as expected, these budget declines could increase as countries’ fiscal positions worsen with time. This could hurt the most marginalized communities in their efforts to access quality education. While sound governance and planning will play a key role in stabilizing each country’s fiscal position, other members of the global education development community (such as philanthropic foundations, the private sector, multilateral development organizations and others) can play a vital role in mitigating such challenges in coordination and partnership with the developing countries and other stakeholders. Experience of the Education Above All Foundation shows that through partnerships and interaction of different countries and different types of institutions and communities, impressive results can be achieved and even the most intractable global challenges can be addressed. The key outcome of this session is to analyse and highlight innovative partnership models and financing approaches by key stakeholders from different regions in a joint effort to find an answer to one of the Sustainable Development Goals — access to quality education.
