Where: Dushanbe, Republic of Tajikistan 

Who: Government officials, development partners, researchers, private sector and civil society from Central Asia and beyond 

Why: Since 2011, UNESCO has organized the Central Asia Symposium on ICT in Education (CASIE) as a sub-regional platform for the Member States to collectively deliberate possible solutions to the issues at hand, with a particular focus on integrating technologies into national education systems. Due to the indispensable value and importance of data collection, especially in light of the ambitious targets of Education 2030 Agenda, it is important to evaluate the current capacity of the countries in providing data needed to monitor the SDG4 indicators.

Over the recent years, the Central Asian countries showed commendable progress within ICT in Education, Education Management Information System (EMIS) development and data collection. However, some challenges remain, including a lack of accessible data, individual student data, and inadequate horizontal and vertical coordination with regard to M&E among Ministries of Education, local governing bodies and educational organizations. 

To support Central Asia in continuously improving its data collection and EMIS, CASIE 2018 calls for a collective effort of various stakeholders from policy, statistics, research and practice to reflect on current conditions, and share their perspectives on EMIS status, environment and utilization. Specificallythe Symposium seeks to address the following aspects, including:

  • Roles of EMIS and education data in enhancing policy, monitoring and evaluation to achieve SDG4
  • Use of digital platforms for data collection
