Context and objectives:

Progressing towards SDG4-Education 2030, central to the achievement of all SDGs, requires careful planning and monitoring of national education systems. Efforts to develop sound education sector policies and strategies is key as it enables countries to engage in productive dialogue with education stakeholders.

The Education 2030 Framework for Action calls for well-resourced, efficient, inclusive, equitable, responsive, resilient, and effectively governed education systems that can meet the diverse learning needs of all children, youth, and adults in a lifelong learning perspective.

In this context, the objective of the Education Systems Strenthening Task Team (SYSTeam) is to support the development of national capacities in planning and managing education systems in sub-Saharan African countries.

“Education systems must be relevant and respond to rapidly changing labour markets, technological advances, urbanization, migration, political instability, environmental degradation, natural hazards and disasters, competition for natural resources, demographic challenges, increasing global unemployment, persistent poverty, widening inequality and expanding threats to peace and safety”. ED2030 FFA
