Crisis Prevention and Recovery

Building on the programmatic areas, results, networks and best practices of previous UNDP Projects, UNDP supports Crisis Prevention and Recovery under its Governance for Empowerment and Social Inclusion cluster through the Governance for Local Economic Development Programme (GLED) and the Strengthening Enforcement of Law, Access to Justice and Social Integration (SELAJSI) Programme implemented during 2013-2017. 

Whilst GLED focuses on strengthening governance capacities at District, Divisional and Provincial levels and improving socio-economic opportunities in vulnerable regions in the country, SELAJSI focuses on ensuring that gains in the justice sector are institutionalized, systematized and scaled-up.




  • UNDP's new flagship Governance for Local Economic Development Programme implemented in 2013-2017 focuses on increasing the capacity of sub-national level governance institutions, civil society, the private sector and communities in order to foster access to enhanced public sector service delivery, socio-economic development and social cohesion across the identified lagging regions, while securing the transition from recovery to development in the lagging areas of Sri Lanka.
