The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) launched a Rs. 1.92 billion (USD$13 million) partnership with the Parliament of
Sri Lanka to strengthen accountability and democratic governance in Sri Lanka.
“This project broadens our support to the
independent commissions, Ministries, and provincial and local levels of
government,” said USAID Mission Director Andrew Sisson at the launch ceremony.
“As always, we will support equal participation by men and women, as well as
underrepresented groups in politics and leadership.”
This three-year Strengthening Democratic
Governance and Accountability Project (SDGAP) aims to improve strategic
planning and communication within government and Parliament, enhance public
outreach, develop more effective policy reform and implementation processes,
and increase political participation of women and underrepresented groups in
Parliament and at local levels.
