Cote D Ivoire Education

Côte d’Ivoire is investing in achieving sustainable high growth levels, for which it requires a strong education sector. The government has its eyes set on expanding basic education access, improving education quality and governance, and enhancing the link between education and the job market. In addition to ongoing initiatives, the government has set out a series of actions, outlined in the 2016-20 National Development Plan, under which it allocates an ambitious indicative budget totalling close to CFA5trn (€7.5bn) for education, including public and private contributions.
