UNESCO International Institute for Educational Planning (UNESCO-IIEP)

Established in 1963, the UNESCO International Institute of Educational Planning (IIEP-UNESCO) is the sole United Nations entity dedicated to educational planning and management. Over the past sixty years, IIEP has supported UNESCO Member States with designing and implementing educational policies and plans to transform education for improved learning, equity, inclusion, accountability, resilience, and relevance. This is achieved through an integrated approach to capacity development incorporating knowledge management and mobilisation, training in educational planning and management, and technical cooperation worldwide.

In the framework of the What Works Hub for Global Education, IIEP will support quality education and improved learning outcomes, working on: (1) enhancing the capacity of education stakeholders al all levels to promote data-driven decision-making; and (2) leveraging the potential of the middle tier for improved learning. The methodology for capacity analysis at the middle tier, developed through the project, will be made available as a global public goods.
