Education Sector Policy Paper (ESPP)
Many new challenges regarding the development of education in Africa have arisen since the approval of the Bank’s last Education Sector Policy Paper (ESPP) in 1986. To guide its future operations in the education sector, the Bank, therefore, decided to re-define its priorities and strategic approach for its support to the development of education. The new ESPP, which contains a set of guiding principles, priorities, and strategic actions and modalities, defines this new direction.
