Message From Secretary, Ministry of Resettlement


The main objective of the Ministry of Resettlement is to ensure dignified resettlement of all displaced persons, who lost their original places of residence as a result of three decades of internal armed conflict in Sri Lanka. The way forward to be adopted in this regard is clearly spelt out in the policy framework of the Government, the Mahinda Chintana- Way Forward.

In the process of resettlement or relocation of internally displaced persons, as the case may be, the Ministry of Resettlement focuses mainly on two aspects. The first aspect is to make available initial humanitarian assistance required by such internally displaced persons. In this regard, the Ministry provides shelter grants, cooked-meals, dry ration (for six months or more) water and sanitation, education and health facilities. These facilities were made available to all the internally displaced and resettled families, which number around 300,000.

Secondly, the Ministry also focuses on creating an enabling environment by facilitating, monitoring and providing facilities for re–integration of resettled communities with the rest of the economy. This includes post resettlement infrastructure development both at community and personal level and also restoration of livelihood of those affected.

In addition to making available basic facilities such as drinking water, sanitation, shelter etc, the Ministry is quite keen to create opportunities for the youth in the conflict affected areas to develop their entrepreneurial and vocational skills. Given the fact that the resettlement of those displaced as a result of humanitarian operations conducted is nearing completion, in keeping with the policy decisions of the Government of Sri Lanka, the Ministry, in the near future, will concentrate on taking action towards creating an enabling environment for the displaced persons of Sri Lankan origin but currently living in India and elsewhere to take considered decisions with regard to their return to Sri Lanka. Further, action will also be taken to facilitate the early resettlement of displaced Muslim and Sinhala families in their places of origin in the respective areas.

The objective of this Web Site is to keep the stakeholders and general public aware of the activities of the Ministry I hope that this will be beneficial to all concerned.

Janaka Sugathadasa
