The OpenEMIS initiative aims to provide tailored solutions that meet country-specific education sector needs. As outlined in the strategy, OpenEMIS can be configured for deployment in different contexts and for varied education systems. OpenEMIS tools can support the automation of paper-based annual census, or to provide real-time monitoring of daily progress of individual students. This can include attendance, behaviour and performance.
With an integrated suite of applications, OpenEMIS provides an evidence-based approach that uses reliable data to inform human development planning and policy decision-making. In turn, monitoring progress on SDG 4 enables countries to align education priorities with overall national priorities in national development plans.
