Civil Society Briefs: Sri Lanka

Publication | December 2013

ADB encourages the involvement of Sri Lanka's nongovernment organizations in the design, process, implementation, and monitoring of ADB-funded projects.

With a view to strengthening ADB cooperation with civil society organizations, the NGO and Civil Society Center periodically prepares reports on the context for civil society organization activities in various developing countries in Asia and the Pacific. These studies contribute to awareness of the important role that civil society organizations play in promoting development across the Asia-Pacific region. The reports are often prepared by nongovernment organizations (NGOs) or with substantial input from NGOs.

This brief provides an overview of civil society in Sri Lanka.
