UNDP Sri Lanka’s Flagship Portfolio on SDG16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions brings together inclusive governance and peacebuilding work under one umbrella. The Portfolio is implemented by UNDP as part of its Country Programme and the United Nations Sustainable Development Framework and enables the provision of cohesive and integrated support to the Government of Sri Lanka.
This includes improving the effectiveness, responsiveness, and accountability of key institutions to deliver people-centered services; promoting inclusive, and participatory decision-making processes; and strengthening peace and reconciliation. Specifically, the portfolio contributes to the achievement of SDG 16+ targets, thus also enabling achievement of all SDGs. The portfolio intervenes across four inter-related thematic pillars: Voice and Representation, Rights and Justice, Strong and Efficient Institutions, and Social Cohesion.
Background to the initiative
The Sri Lankan Government has an obligation to take all possible steps to promote and protect human rights and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues its efforts to promote compliance with Sri Lanka's treaty body obligations through legislative and policy reform. The MOFA is vested with the responsibility to steer the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) mechanism set up under the Human Rights Council.
Complying with Sri Lanka’s treaty body obligations is an important component in this endeavour, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) is in the process of promoting such compliance through various initiative including legislative and policy reform, including the designing and formulation of the National Human Rights Action Plan (NHRAP) which needs to be developed for the year 2023. A fresh consultative process is therefore required to inform and enable the formulation of a new NHRAP for the next five-year period. In formulating a new NHRAP, the MOFA is keen to not only draw upon Government inputs through the respective line ministries and institutions, but to also draw on external expertise and consultation with relevant UN agencies, CSOs and development partners.
