This section provides a wide range of articles, books, and documents that relate to the development of education and training produced and published in the ADEA network.


ADEA’s position for education Post 2015 reaffirms the need for education and training systems to carry out the paradigm shifts that will enable them to produce the human capital with the skills required to contribute to the acceleration of Africa’s sustainable development. These paradigm shifts are outlined in the Strategic Policy Framework adopted by the AU Summit of Heads of State in Addis Ababa in January 2013.

The main purpose of the EMIS Norms and Standards is to have a set of criteria and measures for advocating best practice and benchmarking countries capabilities in being able to produce relevant, accurate, timely and comprehensive education statistics and information. Adopting the Norms and Standards ensures countries will have sustainable, comprehensive and appropriate Education Management Information Systems in harmony with international and regional systems and practices. The Botswana peer review focused on the four thematic areas, namely: Policy and Legal Frameworks; Resource Availability and Utilisation; Statistical Processes; and Education Information Reporting.
The SADC EMIS Norms and Standards code contains 17 minimum norms and standards covering policy and legal frameworks, resource availability and utilization, statistical processes and education information reports. SADC Ministers of Education adopted this code at their annual meeting in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo, in March 2010 and by doing so, committed themselves to adhere to these norms and standards, thereby improving their EMIS. The Assessment Framework and process developed by Member States, stemming from the code, was approved by the Ministers at their annual meeting in 2012 with the intention that all member countries would become compliant. The Swaziland peer review is therefore a follow up to these commitments and a similar process is envisaged in other SADC Member States.
