Message from the Resident
Representative a.i.
UNDP Sri Lanka

It is with great pleasure that I write this
message on the District Development
Plan for Jaffna District, which has a vision for
multiple sectors developed with the support of
the UN Peace building fund.

Developing an integrated plan for a district
requires a concerted and dedicated effort by all
stakeholders to come together to collectively
envision the society that we want to live in.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
reiterate the need for futuristic thinking and
highlights just how much more we need to do in
order to achieve that future we want for the Jaffna
District in 5 years ahead of the 2030 Agenda. We
all have a responsibility to realize this future.

As such, the United Nations Development
Programme is pleased to be involved in this
collaborative process of futuristic development
planning to enable the achievement of
sustainable human development for the people
of Jaffna. I believe this document is the starting
point; a testament of commitment to inclusion
and ownership to ensure no one is left behind.
On behalf of the UNDP in Sri Lanka, I would like
to take this opportunity to thank the Delegation
of the European Union to Sri Lanka and the
Maldives, for the continued support extended by
the Delegation to the UNDP to continue our work
in strengthening government institutions and
local economic development in Sri Lanka. Without
this support, partnership and collaboration
our critical work would not have been possible
in many instances to benefit the people of this

I would also like to thank our Government,
Provincial and District partners for continuing
to support the UN’s engagement at the local
level. The UNDP in Sri Lanka remains committed
to supporting the District Officials, and look
forward to continuing to work closely with our
government counterparts towards this end.
