Summary of publication
This report summarises the progress of Australia’s aid program in Sri Lanka from July 2014 – June 2015.
The report finds that the Australian aid program has made strong progress and most indicative targets were achieved, facilitating the transition toward the new Aid Investment Plan (AIP) 2015 19. Managers successfully responded to performance information and the evolving country context to ensure the Sri Lanka development program remained relevant and effective in 2014-15. The new AIP will build on this program performance and accelerate the transition toward an economic partnership approach. A new political environment in Sri Lanka offers considerable promise for the aid program to leverage greater impact from its investment over the next four to five years.
