Democratic Governance

  • Equal Access to Justice Phase II

    The Equal Access to Justice Project – Phase II was developed to deepen and orient the activities of Phase I of the Equal Access to Justice Project within a conflict prevention framework, while also continuing the shift of the primary focus to the East and North, as well as to the estate sector, and addressing trust/confidence-building, gender-equity, peaceful conflict resolution and mediation. Phase II’s outputs and activities are intended to build trust and faith in the justice system and to support confidence-building through the rule of law and access to justice.

  • Local Governance Programme

    UNDP’s Local Governance Programme was initiated with the aim of enhancing local service delivery for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and to strengthen the local democratic dialogue and support processes that enable citizens to hold local government institutions accountable.

  • Strengthening Enforcement of Law, Access to Justice and Social Integration

    The Strengthening Enforcement of Law, Access to Justice and Social Integration in Sri Lanka (SELAJSI) Programme, will focus on ensuring that gains in the justice sector are institutionalized, systematized and scaled-up. By doing so, the Programme will also contribute to supporting several of the commitments made by the Government of Sri Lanka.

  • Governance for Local Economic Development


UNDP supports the Government to address governance issues by strengthening national institutions to respond to the needs of its citizens. UNDP’s new programme cycle which came into operation in 2013, closely links the poverty reduction, democratic governance and crisis prevention and recovery pillars, under the new ‘Governance for Empowerment and Social Inclusion’ cluster. UNDP will continue to support responsive governance and strengthen access to justice and the rule of law.
