Sri Lanka End-of-Term Report 2016-2018 – For Public Comment
In 2019, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the End-of-Term Report for Sri Lanka’s first action plan (2017-2019). The report covers the full action plan implementation period of July 2016 through June 2018.
In Sri Lanka, the IRM researcher Anoukh de Soysa’s findings are summarized below:
“Sri Lanka’s first action plan covered a broad range of thematic areas including gender, anti-corruption, and access to information. While implementation saw no significant progress made from the midterm assessment, enacting Right to Information (RTI) legislation had a major effect in opening government. Regular meetings by the multistakeholder forum during implementation may elicit more substantial results.”
