ADB-Sri Lanka Partnership Strategy

ADB's operations in Sri Lanka over the next 5 years will be guided by the country partnership strategy (CPS), 2012-2016, which is closely aligned with the government's strategy, Mahinda Chintana 2010-2016, and ADB's long-term strategic framework, Strategy 2020. It focuses on three pillars: inclusive and sustainable economic growth, catalyzing private investment and enhancing the effectiveness of public investment, and human resource and knowledge development.

ADB's interventions during the CPS period will be strategically focused on transport, energy, education, public sector management, and water supply and other municipal infrastructure and services.

Sri Lanka's country operations business plan (COBP), 2014-2016, addresses areas that are a priority for many middle-income countries, such as skills development, transport network optimization, and sustainable energy, focusing on improving social indicators.

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.
