The Five Year Vavuniya District Development Plan
The Five Year Vavuniya District Development Plan was spearheaded by the District Secretariat in partnership with the UNDP in Sri Lanka. It details a multi-sectoral, vision oriented, medium-term plan which reflects the priorities of the District of Vavuniya. It supports the preparation of goal oriented proposals, budgets and monitoring tools which will ensure sustainable and inclusive development at the local level as well as inform high level planning and policy decisions.
This initiative was undertaken with the support of the European Union under the EU- Support to District Development Programme (2013-2018). The preparation of the plan utilized results based management strategies and participatory mechanisms for multi-level stakeholder consultations and is expected to pave the way for resource mobilization from government agencies as well as non-government development partners and the private sector for local economic development.
