Abidjan, Ivory Coast

On March 17, IPA Côte d’Ivoire shared the insights of the education section of the second wave of the RECOVR survey. This two-hour session was hosted by M. Raoul Koné (Deputy Chief of Staff of the Ministry of Education of Côte d’Ivoire). Loïc Watine (Director of the Right-Fit Evidence Unit, IPA) presented key findings related to the various distance education programs that had been put in place during and after the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, as well as the relevant policy implications. In addition to various representatives from the Ministry of Education, representatives from the Jacobs Foundation, which funded part of this work, TRECC, and Teaching At the Right Level Africa, were also part of this hybrid in-person/virtual meeting.

This event followed the presentation of the results of the first wave of IPA's RECOVR survey at the Ministry in July 2020. With these sessions, IPA Côte d’Ivoire aims to continue to support the generation and use of evidence to inform programs and policies to benefit young students across Côte d'Ivoire.
