Sector-Wide Approaches in Education: Issues for Donor Agencies Arising from Case Studies of Zambia and Mozambique. A Report from the Meeting of the International Working Group on Education (IWGE) (Lisbon, Portugal, November 19-21, 2001).
This book contains two case studies--one from Zambia, one from Mozambique--of the implications for donors of pursuing sector-wide approaches (SWAps) in education. (A sector-wide approach is characterized as a sustained partnership led by national authorities involving different arms of government and, where relevant, donor agencies, with the goals of contributing to development in the context of a coherent sector through a collaborative program of work.) The purpose of the studies was to raise issues for discussion at a meeting of the International Working Group on Education (IWGE). Following a discussion of issues in the first chapter, the second chapter introduces the two case studies and puts forward some ideas about how to assess the two education SWAps. The next three chapters comprise the case studies and comparisons of the two SWAps. The next chapter focuses on donor coordination and what emerged from the cases studies and interviews with representatives of 14 different government and nongovernmental agencies from different countries. It also presents the different understandings of donor coordination and donor responsibility toward each other. The next chapter presents various views on SWAps, and the final chapter distills these views for discussion at the IWGE meeting. (WFA)
