eMap is the virtual network on Education Planning and Management developed by UNESCO. eMap enables experts and institutions to register and create their profiles for consultation by the eMap community.


It is intended to provide a space for information sharing and exchange of ideas between planners, managers, researchers and practitioners in areas of education policy development and implementation in the Asia-Pacific Region and beyond.


The database is accessible in English, French and Spanish languages.


The most important features of the eMap database are:

  • A directory of nationally and/or internationally known experts.
  • A directory of national, regional and international institutions offering training, research technical assistance in education planning and management.
  • A platform offering access to extensive resources of NESPAP eResources.
  • A platform for interaction among members of the eMap community.

The eMap experts database features extensive profiles and a dynamic (faceted) profile search tool as well as being multilingual.
