Multilateral and bilateral donors need comparative data to guide their policies and programmes and to monitor progress towards international and national targets, including SDG Target 4.6 which measures rates of adult literacy and numeracy skills. The UIS oversaw the development and validation of the Literacy Assessment and Monitoring Programme (LAMP) to better serve the needs of lower- and middle-income countries. Mini-LAMP is an alternative to a full LAMP assessment that allows to reduce the operational, technical and financial burden of fielding LAMP without compromising the ability to compare results across countries and over time. This paper presents the concept and budget of administering a mini-LAMP in low-income countries.
