POVERTY & VULNERABILITY

 

Despite the remarkable progress in poverty reduction and in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Sri Lanka, considerable disparities exist across sectors and regions. Moreover, many households are vulnerable to various risks such as economic shocks, vagaries of weather, and life cycle events that may cause the non-poor to fall into poverty while pushing the poor into deeper poverty. The large informal sector workforce with relatively low levels of social security, higher rates of unemployment among youth and the educated, particularly among females, are other major issues of concerns. The rapid ageing of population also brings several challenges to the existing social protection system of the country. Addressing the above challenges requires policies and programs that cover a broader spectrum of risks and a vulnerable people including the poor, old aged, disabled, women and children. It requires a comprehensive approach that goes beyond provision of social assistance such as cash or in-kind transfers, to include social insurance and, skills and livelihood development. In this context, the IPS research agenda on poverty and vulnerability focuses on a number of areas/issues that include the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), social protection, microfinance, poverty in lagging regions/sectors, addressing vulnerability and disasters and risk mitigation.
