Supporting Quality Education in the Transitional Period in Egypt and Libya
UNESCO Cairo Office is implementing a capacity building programme to improve the quality of education in Egypt and Libya. The overall objective of the project is to support the Governments of Egypt and Libya to improve quality education in the aftermath of the Arab spring based on the Inter-Agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE) Minimum Standards and other UNESCO relevant normative tools. The project is funded by the government of Japan (Fund-In-Trust), and spans for eight months.
The project is implemented by UNESCO (ED/Cairo and ED/PDE/PER HQ) in collaboration with several partners and stakeholders, namely national education authorities in Egypt and Libya.
The implementation strategy is based on UNESCO HQ expertise, Field Office and specialized institute levels. The strategy will aim to build a team of specialized Egyptian- Libyan experts for experience sharing and mutual support.
Involved in the implementation are INEE Secretariat and pool of experts that deliver effective technical support for Trainers. A combination of international, national, regional and district experts will ensure maximum synergies, complementarities and increase changes to sustain the project achievements.
The training workshops launched have been identified by UNESCO as priority interventions within the education sector, in line with UNESCO’s technical capacity and mandate, for the recovery and sustainment of the education system during the transitional period.
Successful scoping missions in Egypt and Libya ensured the buy-in of national education authorities and other project stakeholders, and paved the way for timely and efficient implementation of project activities to date.
