Supporting Relief and Recovery in Former Conflict-Affected Areas

The 26-year conflict in Sri Lanka, which officially ended in May 2009, claimed 60,000 lives, devastated infrastructure in Northern and Eastern provinces, destroyed arable land and disrupted livelihoods. Socio-economic prospects in the provinces affected have been further eroded by high food prices and natural disasters. Most internally displaced persons have returned home to restart their lives, but challenges remain. Resettlement is proceeding, but recovery and reconciliation needs include demining, resolution of land-ownership and access to basic services.
