Evaluation of UN-Habitat’s Country Programme in Sri Lanka, 2013-2017 (3/2018)
Since 1978, UN-Habitat has supported the development of human settlements policies in Sri Lanka.1 Since this time, UN-Habitat has cooperated with the Government to initiate a range of national programmes and projects.2 After the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, UN-Habitat increased its support of Sri Lanka. The Southern Coast and North-East experienced severe damage, with 30,000 houses damaged and 70,000 destroyed. UN-Habitat’s activities ranged from advocacy to policy advice, coordination and building partnerships, implementation of housing recovery and reconstruction projects, and technical assistance.
