The main purpose of the ESWG is to act as a coordination forum between the PA and donors. It serves as a platform for discussing policy priorities, progress in implementation of the EDSP IV within the National Policy Agenda pillars.

The key functions of the ESWG are as follows:

·         assist donors in aligning assistance in relation to the PA National Plans  and strategies for the sector;

·         support the development and updating of sector strategies within the framework of national plans and budgets;

·         carry out coordinated and strategic dialogue with the purpose of identifying PA priorities and the readiness/availability of the donor community to fund related programmes;

·         function as the main source of information for sector needs and achievements, donor funding and gaps;

·          support the establishment of a sector-wide approach and possibly a pooled funding mechanism;

·         develop joint indicators for sector monitoring and programme-based approaches.

The work of the ESWG is further supported by the Technical and Thematic Working Groups chaired by Ministry of Education (MoEHE). These report directly to the ESWG. ESWG reports to PMO.
