It was published in a newspaper that president Ranil Wickremasinghe has proposed to the Asian Development Bank to establish an International University on climate change. The proposed university is to be established in Sri Lanka and my view is the Mullaitivu area would be the best place to establish the university. Climate change is a broader subject area that associates with science, commerce and art and technology and requires broader research and policy developments to be performed and to disclose research outcomes for further research and policy development. It should be a university that offers education and research in several media such as English, French, Japanese, Chinese, Hindi, Sinhala, Tamil and many languages.

For researching Climate change, it needs many research facilities and the original cost should be calculated the US $ 500 Million, which might need for establishment cost. Annually the proposed university requires US $ 250 million to perform practical and desk research for students and administration from a variety of countries.

This proposal was the cogitation of the performance of Mr Ranil Wickremasinghe after becoming the president of Sri Lanka. It should not be like the Colombo Plan proposal made by JR.Jayawardane.
