Education for sustainability cannot be achieved if teaching and learning materials for supporting reading instruction and learning in schools in general are not getting into the hands of students. Innovations to track and trace books are being piloted in several countries, many initiated by All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development’s Tracking and Tracing Books prize competition. Organizations are conducting pilots and have accumulated a lot of experience to share with international stakeholders in education.

Understanding the need for Track and Trace solutions, the Global Reading Network (GRN) in partnership with the Global Book Alliance (GBA) and All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development (ACR GCD) organized an internal discussion with early grade reading community of practice members to take stock of current initiatives. The objectives of this panel are to:
- Share best practices of Track and Trace initiatives being implemented to facilitate book distribution in developing countries.
- Highlight challenges encountered at the country and the program level and possible solutions.
- Gather additional information from other CIES participants on book distribution initiatives, and advocacy and technical support needed from global organizations such as GRN, GBA and ACR GCD to forward this work.

The panel will include four organizations – one promoting Track and Trace initiatives and three organizations doing deployment and actual implementation of Track and Trace solutions in various countries.
