UNGEI Forum: Sector Wide Approaches (SWAps) in Education (2006)
Vol. 6 No. 2 September 2006
Author/Publisher: UNICEF Eastern and Southern Africa Region
Volume 6, Number 2 of the UNGEI FORUM, ESAR Education Newsletter is focused on the theme of Sector wide approaches (SWAps) in Education.
Sector wide approaches have been adopted in education (and other sectors, especially health) more prevalently in Africa, especially in the Eastern and Southern Africa, than anywhere else in the world. Many countries started developing SWAps in the mid or late 1990s and many more have adopted them since. UNICEF is clearly committed to the SWAps approach and has become a very important player even if the approach is quite a challenge to us as well.
