- The Republic of Korea joined ADEA and we are thrilled by the prospect of enhancing our collaboration.
- The Sub-Saharan Conference on Education Post 2015, which took place last February produced a statement as a prelude to the upcoming meetings in Incheon and New York;
- ADEA and other organizations supported Trust Africa to organize the African Summit on Higher Education, which identified the challenges facing the sub-sector and explored how to revitalize it.
- ADEA facilitated the launching of an Inter-Country Quality Node (ICQN) on Early Childhood Development (ECD) which will be led by Mauritius.
- The ICQN on Mathematics and Science Education (MSE) took steps to be firmly anchored in the Center for Mathematics, Science and Technology (CEMASTEA) based in Nairobi, Kenya.
2015 is on the doorstep. Looking back, while ADEA had its share of challenges in 2014, we were blessed at the end of the year. First reward: Norway, a member of ADEA between 1997 to 2009 is back! We thank Norway warmly for its support and look forward to its return and participation in the ADEA Steering Committee. We are also pleased that ADEA and the African Union Commission (AUC) developed a Road Map of joint activities for 2015 because this will no doubt have a positive impact on human capital development in Africa. In this bulletin, we also thank and congratulate Kenya for a beautiful gift: its first just published Education for Peace policy. We are confident that Kenya will be followed by other countries of the Inter-Country Quality Node on Peace Education (ICQN-PE). On this note on peace, we wish our members and readers happy holidays and a wonderful New Year. We also address our deepest thanks to our members for their continued support. May 2015 bring to you all and to your families peace, love and prosperity!
