Year-end Overview

Plan Overview

Working environment

The constitutional crisis of October 2018 and the terrorist attacks in April 2019 placed a great strain on the central government and its institutions. With Presidential and general elections expected in late 2019, Sri Lanka’s political environment in 2020 is uncertain. A change in government could affect the pace of reforms which were begun by the government elected in 2015, particularly in relation to reconciliation and transitional justice.
 

Key priorities

In 2020, UNHCR will focus on strategic protection monitoring, rights-based interventions, and advocacy for the authorities to assume a stronger role in realizing durable solutions. UNHCR will continue to advocate with the Government, UN agencies, development partners, donors and other missions for consistent inclusion of IDPs and refugee returnees in the existing rehabilitation and assistance programmes. UNHCR is working closely with the UN Country Team to ensure that all persons of concern to UNHCR are mainstreamed in the joint UN agenda, including in UN development framework and the evolving SDG work.
