There is an urgent need for a strong evidence base to inform education policy and practice in sub-Saharan Africa. There are positive signs that the evidence base is growing. However, such research is not always easy to locate, particularly publications by African researchers and institutions.
To address this gap and increase the visibility and impact of African education research, the REAL Centre is partnering with Education Sub-Saharan Africa (ESSA) on a project to catalogue, review and synthesise policy-relevant education research from Africa. The outputs include a searchable database of education research published by researchers based in sub-Saharan Africa.
