Sri Lanka - Empowering southern provinces to plan their own development paths : Sri Lanka - Autonomiser les provinces du Sud pour qu’elles conçoivent leurs propres voies de développement (Francês)

This Results Profile talks about empowering Sri Lanka’s southern provinces to plan their own development paths. About 50 percent of the population in southern Sri Lanka lived below poverty line. About 60 percent lacked basic services, including clean drinking water, sanitation, and access to credit and markets. In 2004, the government of Sri Lanka launched a program known locally as Gemi Diriya, with the objective of empowering rural communities to improve their livelihoods and quality of life. Community Development and Livelihood Improvement Project focused on three southern provinces. More than 2 million households in the poorest districts of Sri Lanka benefited from community infrastructure and productive investments including drinking water, access roads and bridges, access to credit, markets, skills, and income generation. Information and communication technology linked villagers to each other, the government, and the market. The project had introduced a new approach that led the government to revise its own policies, shifting from a welfare-oriented to an empowerment-oriented approach to poverty reduction.
