About Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka, an island nation located along major maritime trade routes in the Indian Ocean, is currently experiencing steady economic growth following 26 years of conflict and a disastrous tsunami in 2004. USAID works with the Government and people of Sri Lanka to help the country sustain this growth while ensuring all citizens enjoy its benefits.

USAID prioritizes programs that bolster economic growth, extend critical social services to local communities, and strengthen the ability of local organizations to advocate for citizen needs and sustain these vital services.
