The national, sector-wide, multi-year action plan aimed to inform the actions of various players in the education sector over a period of five years to ensure that ESDP V targets are achieved effectively, with all agents accountable for their roles. The ESDP V Multi-Year Action Plan (MYAP) guided the preparation of regional directorates, development partners, and civic society plans, ensuring alignment of budgets with sector priorities.
To ensure appropriate contextualisation and relevance across all nine regions and two administrative cities, we worked closely with the Ministry of Education (MoE) to ensure the engagement of stakeholders from civil societies, regional education bureaus, universities, technical and vocational education, and training (TVET) agencies and development partners. The MYAP was meant to guide the implementation of ESDP V and strengthen linkages between the strategic document and activities to be prioritised at all levels of the education system in Ethiopia and provide further breakdowns and details about the budget across five years. Besides finalising MYAP and its implementation plan with corresponding unit costs of all activities, we were involved in ensuring validation of the MYAP, producing supporting documents on the unit costs of the MYAP, and conducting amendments and improvements.
