Southern Voice on Post – MDGs: Social Protection for the Poor and Vulnerable in Sri Lanka

Social protection has been increasingly viewed as an important tool for addressing poverty, vulnerability, inequality, and social exclusion. It plays a vital role in accelerating progress on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and has been recognized as a key element that needs to be included in the post-2015 development agenda. This study reviews the social protection system in Sri Lanka and analyses the country’s progress on achieving the MDGs and the role of social protection in attaining them.
