Draft three-year plan, 2012-2015
This Three-Year Plan sets the strategic direction and provides the overall framework for guiding COL’s work from 2012 to 2015. Learning for Development continues to be the theme of COL’s work. Following the development economist and Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen, COL understands development as freedom. Increasing the freedoms that men and women enjoy is a definition of development and greater freedom empowers people to be more effective agents of development. In concrete terms COL uses the internationally agreed Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the Education for All (EFA) goals and the Commonwealth priorities of peace, democracy, equality and the rule of law as its framework for action.
