• Sri Lanka Millennium Development Goals Country Report 2008/09
    Jul 30, 2010

    The second Country Report on Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) for Sri Lanka, it gives the progress of MDGs in Sri Lanka, since 1990. During the period 1991-2008, economic growth in Sri Lanka has ranged around 4 to 7 percent. Economic growth is an important prerequisite for poverty reduction, and the analysis conducted in the context of this second MDG Country Report clearly shows that poverty rates are declining.

    This study has drawn from the provisions of CEDAW and the critical areas of concern of the Beijing Platform of Action and has included additional indicators that are consonant with the expanded vision of the 2005 Outcome Document and its stance of national contextualisation.

    This report provides a preliminary assessment of how Sri Lanka’s people are faring with respect to the range of social indicators that comprise the MDGs. There are about 5 million people living in poverty in Sri Lanka, perhaps more. Because of the internal war, there are no exact figures for the population in eight districts of the country, and the surveys used to capture incidence of poverty have not yet reached all areas.
