UNESCO and the African Development Bank organized a two-day intensive training on education in fragile states. Ms. Dakmara Georgescu, IBE Programme coordinator contributed with a session on Curriculum development in fragile states. A UNESCO team of trainers, prepared a Workbook on Education in Fragile States as a resource material to facilitate plenary discussions and hands-on group activities. The workshop proceedings and outcomes are extremely important to inform the Bank’s policy with regard to supporting education development in fragile African states.
The workshop provided the Bank education staff with an overview of international experiences in fragile states, as well as with tools to set priorities and work cooperatively with UNESCO in different areas such as: policy making; Education Management Information System (EMIS); curriculum  evaluation, development and implementation; teacher education and training; and HIV and AIDS education.
