Education

The acquisition of knowledge and skills – from primary to higher education – is a prerequisite for the social and vocational integration of young people and sustainable economic growth. It contributes to reducing poverty, social exclusion and inequalities.

Introduction

Developing education and training geared to the economic and environmental challenges of southern countries

Population growth in Sub-Saharan Africa and soaring unemployment in the Mediterranean region have once again made the education and training of individuals, especially young people, central to social, economic and political issues at both local and international level.

In developing countries and most emerging countries, public education systems are extremely weak as a result of underfunding, overcrowded classes, teaching that is often ill-suited…

In this context, the increasing involvement of private actors working to develop high-quality provision contributes to strengthening education systems in the South.
