Namibia - Namibia education and training quality improvement project - ESMP Summary
Education has significant benefits to human development along with its benefits to other sectors. Beyond increased general knowledge; an educated population is better equipped to address issues affecting the country and the region, such as industrial development and poverty eradication. As such, education and training are expected to play a critical role in the attainment of the objectives set out in Namibia’s national development strategies of Vision 2030 and the fifth National Development Plan (NDP5). The challenges experienced in the Namibian education sector are the ability to translate these development strategies into realistic and implementable programmes, and to develop and adopt a set of interventions which raise the quality of educational provision, lead to the elimination of inequalities, establish affordable and sustainable systems, enhance institutional and management capacities, and produce knowledge, competent and innovative graduates.
