ECOPER has collaborated with Ockham IPS in the evaluation of UNESCO’s Associated Schools Project (ASP) Network. The evaluation involved a document review, a series of interviews and focus groups and an online survey, and involved six in-country field missions, including one conducted in Haiti by ECOPER consultant Aitor Pérez.
The ASP Network supports UNESCO in achieving its mandate goals in the area of education, bringing together approximately 10,000 educational institutions in 181 countries, and taking in pre-schools, primary, secondary and vocational schools and teacher training institutions. It aims to achieve its goals by enabling members to put UNESCO principles into practice, bringing the organisation’s fundamental principles to the classroom and raising awareness of global issues. The evaluation covered the period from 2010 onwards and included the key goal of assessing the network’s actual and potential contribution to the UN 2030 Agenda.
