Learning to Improve Book Resource Operational Systems (LIBROS)
This is a part of the Supporting Holistic and Actionable Research in Education (SHARE), a five-year cooperative agreement with the University of Notre Dame (UND) supported by the USAID’s new Bureau for Development, Democracy, and Innovation/Center for Education (DDI/EDU), to advance global education learning priorities to improve learning outcomes. Specifically, this scope of work speaks to the ecosystem diagnostic process, research implementation, and capacity exchange related to the Learning to Improve Book Resource Operational Systems (LIBROS) multi-country study, to which Cambodia will contribute.
As a cooperative partner, Cambodia Development Resource Institute (CDRI), will diagnose the current book supply chain systems in Cambodia, determine opportunities for ongoing collaboration or strengthening needs of the system, implement the designed research, and at the same time strengthen its organizational capacity as a research institution within the local ecosystem.
The primary research objective under this project is to diagnose what worked well in Cambodia that have improved primary level text and children’s book supply chain and what are the transferable lessons for other contexts?
