ICNL’s resources and information on Sri Lanka.
ICNL is supporting local partners to advance enabling legal reform. Following successful push-back in 2018 against a restrictive government proposal to revise the Voluntary Social Service Organizations (VSSO) Act, ICNL provided comparative expertise to a civil society committee tasked with preparing a more enabling reform proposal.
Civil Society Organization Sustainability Index
The index, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development for twenty years, documents the development of civil society in seventy-one countries around the world, including Sri Lanka. ICNL and FHI 360 work with local partners to produce the index annually.
