Summary

Sri Lanka's first Human Development Report, titled, 'Regional Dimensions of Human Development' presented an analysis of regional (district and provincial) dimensions of human development, in tterms of achievements in social and economic development, levels of poverty and gender empowerment. The results paint a very interesting pattern of uneven - and unequal - development in the various districts; where some districts may be well advanced according to some criteria, but are lagging behind on other dimensions.
