MAPS Approach Supporting SDG Implementation in Sri Lanka
26 January 2018
Sri Lanka has a strong track record of human development achievements compared to other South Asian and comparable economies. An island nation that is one of the most densely populated nations in the world, it achieved the Millennium Development Goal target of halving poverty seven years ahead of the 2015 deadline. It stands at 72 out of 188 countries on the Human Development Index, despite 30 years of armed conflict.
