In addition to the other services provided by the Pôle de Dakar, African states can also request studies on demand. According to the different problems affecting individual countries, these studies can focus on specific education system issues: learning time, quality of learning, absenteeism, evaluation of national officials’ capacities, household surveys, etc.
The Pôle de Dakar also organises, on demand, short-term training in its areas of expertise. The Pôle de Dakar provides appropriate training based on the needs of partner governments (technical capacity-building prior to conducting a CSR diagnosis, use of financial simulation models, etc.).
