The International Development Association of the World Bank has agreed to provide Rs 21 billion (USD 182 million )  for implementation of the Provincial Roads Project, Northern Emergency Recovery Project and Community Livelihoods in Conflict Affected Areas Project.


The  Provincial Roads Project with  a funding of Rs 12 billion ( USD 105 million) will upgrade and rehabilitate 150 km of provincial roads in Uva Province ,100 km of provincial roads in Ampara District in Eastern Province and another 100 km of provincial roads in Jaffna District in Northern Province. The project is aimed in improving access to social economic activities in Eastern, Uva and Northern Provinces through the sustainable management of improved road infrastructure.

It will be achieved through the assistance for: emergency cash support to conflict affected households enabling them restart their lives; medium term economic security through rehabilitation of agriculture and other livelihood assets and restoration and improvement of essential public infrastructure and facilities. The Project expects to reach about 100,000 IDPs, covering Phase three and four of the Government five-phased Plan for the resettlement of IDPs.
