The Agency's programmes will derive from its purpose and functions, and the priorities they entail (see section 2). In the light of these we are led by the assessment of human resource development needs reported by the Briggs committee, and by our own experience, to suggest certain important activities on which the Commonwealth of Learning could usefully embark. We believe they meet the criteria of appropriateness to socio-economic conditions, considerations of sustainability, relevance to the development priorities of member countries and the existing state of their communication technology, the need to develop institutional capacity, and the enhancement of impact through possibilities open to the Commonwealth of Learning.
