Ambassador of Delegation of EU to Sri Lanka and the Maldives Tung-Lai Margue said, “Good governance and the participation of communities are important to ensure that a country’s growth reaches everyone. Local government structures must be responsive to 
people’s needs. 

These are key elements in ensuring effective governance on the ground which help address causes of conflict. With STRIDE, the EU contributes to long-term peace, security and development in Sri Lanka.”


The EU-funded STRIDE project is a collaboration with the World Bank (WB)-funded Local Government Development Project. It will be implemented in the Northern, Eastern, North Central and Uva provinces. 


The EU and WB will introduce a small grants scheme to local authorities to strengthen their capacities in planning and service delivery with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).   


STRIDE will also strengthen community and special mediation boards to improve citizens’ experience of and access to justice services.


The activities will be implemented by the WB, UNDP and British Council together with The Asia Foundation in partnership with the Internal and Home Affairs and Provincial Council and Local Government Ministry as well as the Justice and Prison Reforms Ministry.The programme is expected to run for four years and will help an estimated one million Sri Lankan people under 134 local government authorities in the four provinces.
