This report has been prepared by a team from LINS, the Centre for International Education at Oslo University College. LINS staff involved included Karen Brit Feldberg, Titus Tenga, Robert Smith and Roald Skoelv (LINS Centre Leader).
Sources of information have been mainly documentary or through the official websites of the organisations included in the survey. Some follow-up questions were put directly to staff of selected development agencies by telephone or face-to-face. However, it should be emphasised that the views expressed in this report remain those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the positions of the various agencies, including GTZ and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). LINS would like to thank the GTZ sector program on post-primary education and primarily the German
Ministry of Economic Development and Cooperation (BMZ) for the opportunity to examine this important area of assistance to education in Southern Saharan Africa. We express the hope that our findings will prove useful to the future development cooperation in upper basic/lower secondary education in Africa.
