3. Prospects and key projects for improving education in Africa


• In Africa, as throughout the world, education is a priority area for the development of every society.
• The start of the new school and university year in several African countries  provides an opportunity to gain an insight into global trends in education.
• This edition of macro – trends aims to provide an overview of some of the trends and data relating to education in Africa.

• Given the scarcity of data and the lack of resources in Africa to produce it, we have endeavoured to summarise the reports offering the most recent data.
• We hope that this work, made available by the STRATEGIES!, will help you to understand some of the challenges facing education on the African continent.
