Research

IPS research on Human Resources for Sustained Development addresses the constraints to strengthening Sri Lanka’s human resources to meet the changing demands of a globalized economy. Improving access to high quality tertiary level education, meeting gaps in the quality and access to general education, and addressing health concerns such as nutrition and prevalence of NCDs are important to ensure success in education and greater productivity in work life. The challenges are compounded by demographic transitions reflected in a shrinking working age population and a growing older population that require improvements in productivity and labour force participation rates.
