During the four days of the workshop, participants deliberated and made inputs to several proposed Indicators for monitoring the implementation of CESA Strategic objectives. Also, they agreed on the reporting template to be used for reporting on CESA – The CESA Reporting template.

Dr. Beatrice K. Njenga, Head of Education Division and Officer in Charge of the Human Resource, Science and Technology Department in her opening remarks highlighted that the CESA Indicator Framework provides Africa with a credible mechanism for monitoring and following up on implementation progress of CESA 16-25. Advocating for CESA, Dr. Njenga said: “The Continental Education Strategy for Africa (CESA 16-25) is the foundation on which the continental education development agenda is built for the next ten years.”  She added that it leans on the African Union’s Agenda 2063 and is a domestication of the global Education Agenda 2030 and SDG4”.

The Education Planning Cluster which is to have oversight on all other CESA clusters and the Peace and Education Cluster were launched on the last day of the workshop, 1st December 2017. The draft concept note and TOR as well as membership structure and available positions in the leadership of the clusters were presented to participants for their inputs.
