 Development Effectiveness Brief

Sri Lanka: Development Effectiveness Brief

The partnership between Sri Lanka and ADB started in 1986. Since then, ADB has helped the country to improve its transport, education, power, and water supply and sanitation systems. Sustained and uninterrupted ADB engagement in these key sectors helped Sri Lanka to enhance service delivery to the country’s population.

In education, policy changes have been achieved and innovations introduced. The country’s road network has been upgraded and extended. In the water sector, two million people were provided access to safe water, institutional capacity was developed, and reforms were introduced. The country’s rural electrification grid and transmission and distribution systems have also been expanded. ADB’s post-conflict assistance has yielded tangible results.

The country brief summarizes how the partnership between the Government of Sri Lanka and ADB has contributed to the development of the country.

The table includes projects completed during the period, and funded by ADB's ordinary capital resources and/or the Asian Development Fund, cofinanciers, and the government. The outputs presented are limited to ADB's core sectors, as defined under Strategy 2020 and tracked through indicators in the ADB Results Framework. ADB monitors progress on these outputs in the annual Development Effectiveness Review. The numbers represent the sum of outputs and beneficiaries of individual projects. Therefore, the beneficiary numbers reported under education—teachers trained, and students benefitting from school improvement programs or direct support—include those who benefited from more than one project.
