CGA is responsible for developing the digital Education Management Information System (EMIS) for both Federal and Sub-Federal Ministries of Education. This will optimise the collection of data on schools and centres, analysis, and utilisation of data around enrolment, retention, completion and achievement of the Alternative Education Programme (AEP). Through this we will develop school and AEP centre profiles, coordinate with the Project’s M&E team and ensure the availability of near real time reporting for the Somali Education Authorities.
