Outcomes of the Education Data Solutions Roundtable

The Education Data Solutions Roundtable (DRT), a public-private initiative convened by the Global Partnership for Education, aimed to leverage government, civil society, private and development partners’ expertise to improve the availability and use of accurate and timely education data in developing countries and at global level.

The initiative also sought to engage with the private sector in a more concrete manner, recognizing the enormous potential of the business community to co-create innovative solutions and new technologies with other development stakeholders to drive improvements in education at community, regional, national and ultimately global levels—all while noting that to be transformative, any intervention to strengthen a country’s data systems must be country owned.

This document’s intent is to support developing country partners by offering concrete, actionable recommendations for improving their education sector data production, flows, reporting and usage. Some are “quick wins,” while others may be more complex and challenging, depending on country context.
