'Learning for Development’ is the overarching theme of the Commonwealth of Learning’s work. The recent Education for All, Global Monitoring Report 2013 also emphasizes the centrality of teaching and learning for development. Increasingly, development agencies are beginning to recognize that all learning must contribute to development outcomes. Similarly, universities, educational and research institutions, civil society organizations and the private sector have, in their own ways, gained the knowledge and experience of linking learning to development. There is a need to share this vast body of knowledge and experience with the wider community of policy-makers and practitioners. // The Journal of Learning for Development (JL4D) will provide the platform for the publication of research with a focus on innovation in learning and its contribution to development. The focus is on applied research in development contexts that has direct relevance to practice. This includes interventions that change social and/or economic relations, especially in terms of improving equity, addressing poverty and unemployment.
