Putting down roots for peace and development in Sri Lanka

Date issued: 21 September 2022 |

As a way to mark the International Day of Peace 2022, the ILO releases a video about the SURAR project in Sri Lanka (Support to Resettlement and Reconciliation through the United Nations Joint Programme for Peace), funded by the US Department of State.

The project supported resettled Tamil communities in formerly conflict-affected areas in northern Sri Lanka by assisting them to revive their livelihoods and reintegrate with existing communities. Beneficiaries of the project include female-headed households, conflict-affected youth, and persons with disabilities.
