  • Environmentally Sensitive Areas

    The Ministry of Mahaweli Development and Environment in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) developed five-year pilot project, jointly funded by the Global Environmental Facility and the Government of Sri Lanka to improve the country capacity to manage Environmentally Sensitive Areas

  • This project will have a positive impact both at the local and global level on biodiversity conservation and human well-being. One of the major positive impacts would be the sustenance of the livelihood of those communities that rely on healthy ecosystems. Globally too, the conservation of Sri Lanka’s unique biodiversity, will see positive results, such as reducing the risk to species and areas that are unique to the island and also are facing any threat. It is also anticipated that the project will be able to reduce the threats to biodiversity in other parts of the world by controlling the export of IAS from Sri Lanka.

  • "Road Map for Disaster Risk Management - Towards a Safer Sri Lanka" was the vision document that was formulated by the Ministry of Disaster Management. In 2008, UNDP undertook the responsibility to assist the Disaster Management Centre (DMC) and other stakeholders to operationalize this document. It is funded by three main donors; Bureau for Crisis Prevention (BCPR), AusAID and USAID.
