rigorously, and utilize research and study more effectively. Education Sector Analytical Capacity Development Partnership (ACDP) is a joint program between the MoEC, the then MoRTHE,
MoRA and BAPPENAS, supported by the EU, DFAT of the Australian Government, and managed by ADB, which worked intensively to meet the above purposes. The 5-year partnership
