Support to comprehensive Climate Risk Mitigation program for Sri Lanka

The impacts of natural disasters in Sri Lanka have been sizable over the past decade, particularly flood and drought. Floods have cumulatively affected more than 8.5 million people, while droughts have affected more than 5 million (Sri Lanka Disaster Information System). Floods of 2003, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012, have all caused widespread impact. The World Bank “Climate Resilience Improvement Project for Sri Lanka” aims to reduce the vulnerability of exposed people and assets to climate risk and to improve government's capacity to respond effectively to disasters. An interactive webGIS tool has also been delivered as a part of the project.
