The Global Coalition for Education Data (GCED), the Coalition, is a new way of organizing the work of the Technical Cooperation Group (TCG) of the Indicators for Sustainable Development Goals - Education (SDG4) and is aligned with the multilateral education partners’ commitment signed in July 2019. The GCED will strengthen national and sub-national systems for integrated monitoring of education programmes and performance. By helping all stakeholders to collect, analyse and use timely and accurate data, the Coalition will contribute to the goal of data driven performance and accountability, and address the challenge of fragmented sources of data on education, too often resulting in data inadequate for reliable decision making.
