On March 25, 2024, in Yaoundé, Cameroon officially launched its policy dialogue activities as part of the Global Partnership for Education Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX). Organized by the Ministry of Basic Education in collaboration with the KIX Africa 21 Hub, the event was chaired by the Secretary General, Mr. Adams Daniel OYONO, representing the Minister of Basic Education, Professor Laurent Serge Etoundi NGOA. 

In his speech at the launch ceremony, Mr. OYONO expressed his gratitude to the members of the KIX Africa 21 Hub consortium for their efforts, emphasizing the importance of this initiative in ensuring access, equity, governance, relevance and quality of education, particularly in conflict zones and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He called on all those involved in education in Cameroon to commit to meeting the objectives of the KIX program. 

Over the course of two days, the participants, divided into working groups, drew up a five-year strategic plan aimed at identifying the challenges, strategies, actions and activities required for the successful implementation of the KIX program in the country. This national policy dialogue will continue with the launch of a call for papers to collect promising innovations in line with national educational priorities. 

KIX is an initiative of the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and is implemented at the regional level by the KIX Africa 21 Hub, led by a consortium comprising AUF, CONFEMEN and IFEF (OIF). The KIX Africa 21 Hub works closely with a national coordination team headed by Ms. Claudette NDAYI, Educational Inspector.
