PAL Network has continuously promoted the salience of Foundational Literacy and Numeracy (FLN) in the Global South. The Policy Dialogue on Evidence for Learning in Nairobi between March 28-29, 2023 is part of our ongoing attempt of involving multiple stakeholders in discussions and ideation sessions to support children’s foundational learning in the SSA region. This intervention has two pillars: 1.) Engagement with regional organizations (ECOWAS, EAC and SADC) on the FLN situation in Sub Saharan Africa based on a policy scan conducted by PAL Network that revealed existing challenges and potential solutions. This pillar also investigates contextual and global views on bridging global, regional, and local policy contexts to improve foundational reading and math of African children; 2.) Providing evidence for learning about the current state of learning in SSA and evidence on what works to improve learning.
