|dc.description.abstract||The environment in which COL is operating is fast changing and challenging.
Learning and education are seen as critical to the achievement of national development goals, yet learning and education are themselves changing in response to new technology and greater knowledge of education effectiveness and efficiency. A strong focus on return on investment is leading to new models for the design, development, deployment, delivery and recognition of learning. New competitors for COL’s position in this market for ideas and opportunity are emerging, both from other development agencies and from the private sector.
COL remains well positioned for now, but needs to respond to the changes and challenges with boldness and ambition.||en_US
