Knowledge and Resources

This is a compilation of Knowledge and Resources in the ADEA Network. The sharing of Knowledge is an important strategic objective of the ADEA. The social capital of all of stakeholders in Education in Africa is developed through exchange of information and the sharing of knowledge within and outside the ADEA network. 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.


This policy brief is produced by the Association for the Development of Education in Africa (ADEA) for the Summit on Higher Education on Revitalizing Higher Education for Africa’s future (Dakar, Senegal, March 10-12, 2015). The argument presented in this policy brief is that there is need to shift to more holistic gender responsive strategies. Such strategies move beyond simply enabling women’s access to HEIs to issues affecting women’s ability to fully participate, and perform within these institutions. Based on the Forum for African Women Educationalists’ research, the key priorities for addressing the gender inequalities in African HEIs are highlighted.

This brief explores some of the policy options, models and their implications for countries investing in quality early childhood education. Co-produced by ADEA and the Inter Country Quality Node on Early Childhood Development hosted by the Ministry of Education and Human Resources, Tertiary Education and Scientific Research, Mauritius.

In this white paper, the Norwegian Government commits itself to being a driving force in the effort to ensure that education is a high priority in developing countries and in international development cooperation, both politically and financially.

This brief is developed in anticipation of exploring possible models that focus on accounting for the attendance of teachers in class using technologies and other management tools. The brief assesses the scope of the challenge and highlights promising initiatives that deserve further exploration and research. In doing so it intends to position ADEA to undertake a pilot study in one or more countries to push the boundaries on what is contextually possible on a system wide scale and provide catalytic information for other countries to follow suit.

This brief on the educational performance of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Regional Economic Community tracks the status of the eight components of the African Union’s Plan of Action for the Second Decade of Education. The coverage of education statistics for the associated member states is notably poor and hence much remains to be learned about the region. However, this brief serves as a basis for review until the opportunities arise to investigate and learn more about the region’s education and training sector.
