The third in a series published by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL), this booklet reproduces five addresses and one article from late 2006 and early 2007. This collection of speeches is entitled "Learning for Development" because that is the focus of the work of the COL's work. The addresses presented here were given at the opening and closing ceremonies of the highly successful "4th Pan-Commonwealth Forum on Open Learning" held in Jamaica in late 2006.
