The ministry of Education in Somaliland, with the European Union and the Global Partnership for Education, conducted a joint annual review of the education sector in September. Noting a rise in the enrollment figures for boys and girls in primary and secondary education, together they prepared an action plan for targets to be achieved in 2019.

The action plan puts an emphasis on increasing access to education for the most marginalized boys and girls, improving learning outcomes through teacher training, as well as better management of the education sector. The Somaliland government committed to gradually increasing the education share in its overall budget in support of the implementation of the education sector plan.
