Abstract (200 Character Limit) : 
Research evidence indicates that in low-income countries books that are produced do not make it to their final destination in schools due to various inefficiencies. 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 this panel of presentations at the annual conference of the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES). The objectives of the panel were to: Share best practices of track and trace initiatives being implemented to facilitate book distribution in developing countries; and Highlight challenges encountered at the country and the program level and possible solutions.
