In February 2018, GPE launched the Education Data Solutions Roundtable to leverage partners’ expertise and improve the availability and use of accurate and timely education data.
Quality education data is essential to inform planning and policy decisions by governments. Without data, it is impossible to build effective, resilient and accountable education systems. Equally, aggregated data is critical to monitor progress towards SDG 4.
However, most developing countries lack education information systems and the tools to communicate the data needed by governments and partners to target their resources where the need is greatest.
