UNDP Unveils Its Latest Findings, Revealing A Stark Reality Of Multidimensional Vulnerability Plaguing Significant Portions Of Northern And Eastern Region Of Sri Lanka

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has unveiled its latest findings, revealing a stark reality of multidimensional vulnerability plaguing significant portions of the Northern and Eastern region of Sri Lanka. As a solution, Indian investments in the entire Sri Lanka in general and the region in particular are being seen as a way to help ameliorate the living conditions by creating job opportunities.

The Multidimensional Vulnerability Index (MVI) indicates that a substantial percentage of individuals residing in these areas are struggling below the poverty line and facing various vulnerabilities. Disturbingly, certain districts within these regions stand out as among the worst affected across the entire island nation.

The recent developments in collaboration between Sri Lanka and India offer a potential pathway towards ameliorating these challenges. There is optimism that collaborative efforts between Sri Lanka and India could pave the way for tangible improvements in the lives of those most affected by poverty and vulnerability.
