This project is part of a financing agreement signed with the Iraqi government in 2016, titled ‘Capacity Building Program for Primary and Secondary Education in Iraq’. The agreement objectives are to improve the quality and equality of the Iraqi education system, and to strengthen institutional capacities in education administration at central and local level, promoting decentralisation in education management. 

In order to achieve the second objective, the EU launched the ‘System Building and Capacity Strengthening of the Ministry of Education (MoE) and its Sub-National Directorates of Education for Effective Delivery of Quality Education Outcomes’ program. This is implemented jointly by UNESCO and UNICEF.

The program’s specific objectives are as follows.

  1. To improve the effectiveness and efficiency of education through the roll-out of the Education Management Information System (EMIS), as well as increased capacity of education planners, statisticians and educators at central and governorate levels.
  2. To strengthen the capacity of the Ministry of Education at central and governorate level, in order to improve education services delivery.
  3. To enhance the quality of teaching and learning by operationalising the capacity development plan and developing teachers’ capacities at central and governorate levels.
