An initiative Sri Lanka should emulate
NKC's present recommendations cover vital areas such as libraries, translation, language, knowledge network, right to education, vocational education, higher education, national science and social science foundation and E-governance.
Its works in process include focus areas covering Literacy, Health Information network, portals (environment, health etc), open and distance education, school education, legal education, medical education, management education, technical education, innovation and entrepreneurship, Intellectual property rights, science and technology, agriculture, and traditional knowledge.
Potential Future Areas cover Strategies for New Technologies (such as Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Security Applications, Cryptology), Environment, Public Health, Gender (including education - specific constraints to education of girls), Legal Access Issues including availability of laws and judgements in the public domain, Basic Access to clean water, food etc., Teacher Training, Learning Methods, Government Process Re-engineering, grass roots/rural/social innovation and grass roots business.
