The government and its partners set out to adopt a more targeted approach and strengthen coordination capacities for implementation and monitoring of the reform, including mechanisms for better use of data, learning and adaptation.
“The Compact represents an opportunity to accelerate results for achieving quality inclusive learning for all children in the Republic of Tajikistan; it also represents a milestone for leveraging additional financial resources needed to implement the national education reform on 21st century skills and digital transformation. Moving into implementation, UNICEF is strongly committed to these transformational priorities, and we will continue supporting, in our capacity as the coordinating agency, the continuous coordination and policy dialogue established among development partners and the technical departments at the Ministry of Education and Science,” noted Osama Makkawi Khogali, Representative UNICEF in Tajikistan.
Moving forward on the pathway to system transformation
Tajikistan’s Partnership Compact is a living document and will be updated as needed. As the government and partners move forward, updates will draw on ongoing sector planning and policy processes to ensure priorities are aligned to national plans and policies. A mid-term review will assess progress in key areas of the compact.
Tajikistan’s local education group will jointly support and monitor compact implementation. To facilitate learning and adaptation, the compact includes monitoring, evaluation and learning elements for tracking progress in the reform area. This enables course correction as more is learned about what is happening in the system.
One of GPE 2025’s most salient features is that the strategy is designed to meet countries where they are. Tajikistan is demonstrating how the process can support navigating its pathway to improve the quality of learning for the country’s children and youth and ensure that no one is left behind.
