Sri Lanka: Distance Education Modernization Project
sector: Education | country: Sri Lanka
This validation agrees with the lessons identified in the project completion report (PCR). In addition, it is noted that the project analysis tended to focus on supply-side interventions with inadequate attention to the demand side. The assumptions and risks identified in project design mention the assumption that external degree students will recognize the quality and convenience of DEPP distance learning, but all other assumptions and risks focus on supply-side issues. In a market intervention of this kind, both supply and demand need equal attention.
