This webinar is part of Africa Evidence Week and will contribute essential knowledge to ongoing global education discussions such as: ➡️ How can education data systems be strengthened to drive better policy decisions on resource allocation and to manage education systems equitably? ➡️ How can education data be transformed into user-friendly formats to inform education planning at decentralized levels and social accountability at community level? ➡️ How to co-create and co-implement large-scale education research with Ministries of Education, local academics, and in-country partners during a global pandemic?

With thanks to the IDRC KIX team, the webinar will be conducted in English with simultaneous interpretation in French.
