Sustaining Educational and Economic Momentum in Africa

This publication is a report on the conference for "Sustaining the Education and Economic Momentum in Africa amidst the Current Global Financial Crisis," which was organized by ADEA, the World Bank, and the African Development Bank in Tunis, Tunisia from 15-17 July 2009. The conference united 44 African ministers of finance and education from 28 countries. Attendees discussed why and how they must exercise joint political leadership during the current global economic crisis to protect the educational development achieved during the past decade. They acknowledged that educational reform is an agenda for the entire government and that strong leadership to foster cross-ministry collaboration, coordination, and mutual accountability is required to ensure that education and training investments are effective in advancing national development and economic progress.
