1. ICT Policy last updated January 8, 2010, “Policy and Procedures for ICT Usage in Government (e-Government Policy).  Written by the Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA), published in English.   This policy outlines the application of ICT4D for development via Sri Lanka’s government endeavors.

2. “e-Sri Lanka: Smart People Smart Island” ICTA

3. “e-Sri Lanka: Transforming a Nation through Information Communication Technology”.  Published by ICTA in 2010.  PDF linked article, “e-Society and Researching the Rural Poor through Tele/Knowledge Centers- Nensalas”.  Project conducted through “e-Sri Lanka” involving installation of telecommunication centers throughout rural Sri Lanka and other ICT4D endeavors in the nation.

4. World Summit Award Article, World Summit Award: Smart e-Content for Smart People. 

Kevin Donovan’s “ICT4E in India and South Asia- Sri Lankan Country Study.”

5. I found it very easy to find resources on Sri Lanka thanks to it’s extensively published e-policies online. Sri Lanka has partnered with the World Bank to create a well-developed “e-agenda” that has been a great success over the past 8 years, and is a good example of a nation working towards development through ICT4D successfully.
