Evidence on education in the early years needs greater prioritisation in sub-Saharan Africa
To provide up-to-date information on research available for the purposes of education planning, the Research for Equitable Access and Learning (REAL) Centre at the University of Cambridge, in collaboration with the charity Education Sub Saharan Africa (ESSA), has updated the African Education Research Database.
The database, launched in 2017, contains peer-reviewed publications on education by researchers from 48 sub-Saharan African countries (excluding South Africa). In addition, our story published by ADEA a year ago highlighted the importance of listening to African researchers to ensure evidence from the continent informs education policy and practice.
