Improving learning outcomes for reading and writing in the early grades: integration of curriculum, teaching, learning materials and assessment is a three-year project (October 2013 - October 2016) co-coordinated by the International Bureau of Education (UNESCO-IBE) and the Ministries of Education in Burkina Faso, Niger and Senegal.


The partnership, sponsored by the Global Partnership for Education (GPE), aims at providing the Ministries of Education with technical assistance in terms of curriculum reforms so as to enhance the quality and effectiveness of reading and writing instruction and acquisition in the first three years of primary education.

The purpose of the meeting was to discuss and plan activities during the 2015-2016 implementation phase of the project.
