  Strategic Orientation Framework for Basic Education in a Holistic, Integrated and Diversified Vision of Lifelong Education This strategic orientation framework puts forward a vision of high-quality education encompassing the full diversity of learning modes in order to meet the varied needs and situations of learners. It promotes all forms of education ? formal, non-formal and informal ? as well as mobility and crossovers between education sub-systems. The framework is intended as a diagnostic tool for African education systems and an aid for the (re)formulation of education policies. It identifies ten strategic areas for implementation, ranging from research to governance to capacity building.
  Education in Reconstruction. Zimbabwe Each of these reports is part of a four-country study undertaken by the ADEA WG on Education Management and Policy Support team, covering Kenya, Liberia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and Zimbabwe.
  Education in Reconstruction: Promising practices and challenges in four post-crisis countries In times of conflict and crisis, resources are diverted from core activities such as education to tackle emergency situations. As a consequence, these core public services deteriorate or collapse depending on the severity of the crisis. Education provision has recently been recognized as a key humanitarian response in a situation of crisis or emergency and vital in normalizing a conflict situation for affected communities. There is, however, less recognition of the role it plays during the transition phase between emergency and stability, when basic services have resumed and a measure of stability has been attained. This study looks at the role education plays in solidifying early recovery and peace gains in the management of education provision.
  Peer Review in Education in Africa Nigeria Reaching out to the Disadvantaged : Nomads, Adults and Children in Difficult Circumstances The Government of Nigeria has endorsed to participate in the African Peer Review program, under the aegis of the Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA). It became therefore, necessary to carry out a research as part of the self-evaluation task towards meeting both the Nigerian and the ADEA goals. The self?evaluation has been followed by an international review of peers coming from several African countries and the Commonwealth Secretariat. This exercise is expected to provide a basis for Nigeria to improve on its policies and practices for the development of quality Adult and Non-Formal education delivery services.
