Briefing note

Education on pause

Published 21. Jun 2024
High education assistance needs are exacerbating the learning gap in Cameroon.

Cameroon, like many other nations in the African continent, faces a range of educational challenges that limit access to quality education and hinder the development of human capital.

Despite progress in recent years, significant gaps in access, quality and relevance of education persist, particularly in rural areas and among marginalized populations. Inadequate infrastructure and resources, gender inequalities, poor quality of education, vocational training mismatches, and limited funding are some of the key challenges that Cameroon’s education system faces.
