To help transform education systems in the West and Central Africa and Indian Ocean regions, the KIX Africa 21 regional hub advocates a step-by-step, highly consultative policy dialogue. This process aims to promote the consideration and integration of knowledge and innovations in the formulation of education policies and the development of sector education plans.
Policy dialogue begins with ministries of education taking ownership of the Knowledge and Innovation Sharing (KIX) program under the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), through national KIX coordination teams and all stakeholders in the sector.
This is based on the premise that education policies, governance, and systems management are more effective when the innovations and knowledge most likely to bring about systemic change are identified, analyzed, validated, and integrated, using a consensus-based approach, into a national policy dialogue involving all stakeholders.
Sharing experiences, best practices, and evidence can effectively guide public education policies.
