The importance of accurate data cannot be overemphasized in making an informed decision for policy. Therefore, it is one critical step for a country to equip itself with a rigorous educational management and information system (EMIS) to collect most up-to-date data at the school, district and national levels. 

UNESCO, in partnership with Community Systems Foundation, takes an initiative to promote OpenEMIS, a generic EMIS software that it is designed to be quickly adjusted and deployed according to each country specificities (administrative structure, education system structure, handled data…). Being an open source, it can be further customized by the national authorities and connected to existing national databases.
