Farrell, Glen
Commonwealth of Learning
The Commonwealth of Learning (COL) is renewing its commitment to the enhancement of literacy in the developing countries of the Commonwealth by establishing a program area focused on Literacy and Livelihoods. While the program activities will build on the work COL is already engaged in, they will also be informed through consultation with policymakers and practitioners experienced in the area of literacy development. In light of the above, COL organized an International Literacy and Livelihoods Experts Meeting, November 15-17, 2004 in Vancouver, BC. The purpose of the meeting was to elicit advice and recommendations regarding initiatives that COL might take up or "add value" to with respect to the provision of integrated literacy and livelihoods learning in Commonwealth countries. A cross section of 26 international experts, representing governments, development agencies, NGOs, international organizations and education institutions participated in the meeting, along with a number of COL staff members. This report provides an overview of the inputs and outcomes of the meeting as well as a recommendation for a strategic framework that is based on a synthesis of the suggestions put forward by the international experts. Appended are: (1) list of all participants according to Working Group; (2) Working Group Report Summaries; (3) Meeting Program; and (4) Participant Feedback.
