Protocol on Education & Training 1997

Date Signed

Member States acknowledge that whilst each Member State has its own policies for education and training and whilst cooperation and mutual assistance in education is desirable, this can be facilitated more effectively by the development of harmonised and eventually standardised policies regarding education and training.

The Protocol on Education and Training Development in SADC identifies the areas of cooperation as follows: basic education, intermediate education and training, higher education and training, research and development, life-long education and publishing and library resources.

The Protocol further gives guidance on institutional arrangements for implementation of the Protocol as well as resources and scholarship fund assets.
