Development of Education Sector Analysis & Education Sector Strategic Plan Development for Somaliland Ministry of Education and Science (MO&ES)

Opportunity Background

Background Information

In its National Education Policy (NEP 2015-2030) Somaliland demonstrates its commitment to education as a means to prepare all students to become life-long learners equipped with the skills, knowledge and attitudes to be successful and productive citizens. This commitment is aligned with the Government of Somaliland’s Vision 2030, which states that Somaliland will be “A nation whose citizens enjoy equitable and quality education” (Somaliland National Development Goals). The Vision 2030 provides a roadmap for national development that leaves no one behind.

To realize this vision and guide the development of education, the Somaliland Ministry of Education and Science (MoES) started developing a national education sector strategic plan in 2012 with the support of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE). The first five-year strategic plan was developed and implemented from 2012-2016. In September 2016, Somaliland developed the second and current operational five-year Education Sector Strategic Plan (ESSP 2017-2021).

The implementation period of the ESSP 2017-2021 will end on 31 December 2021, and the MoES has started preparation work for the development of the next five-year plan (ESSP 2022-2026). The MOES developed and shared with GPE, an indicative road map suggesting the timeline and key milestones for undertaking education sector analysis (ESA) and developing the education sector plan (ESP). This road map indicates the preparation process to start the last quarter of 2020 and get it finalized and endorsed before end of 2021 taking sufficient time in producing quality and realistic sector plan.
