Upgrading Book Distribution in Africa

The quest for an equitable textbook distribution system represents one of the key challenges facing governments in sub-Saharan Africa today. This study tries to bridge the gap between what is happening and what is possible. It provides a comparative analysis of the key policy issues affecting book distribution in Africa, drawing on major case studies done in Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Malawi, Niger, and Uganda, and mini studies from Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Côte d'Ivoire, Mali, Senegal, Tanzania, and Togo. This study includes key options that policy makers need to consider in developing national frameworks for efficient textbook delivery. It represents the most comprehensive survey of efficient textbook distribution in Africa for over a decade.
