Sri Lanka Baseline Assessment Report

The Asian Disaster Preparedness Center (ADPC), in collaboration with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, launched the program in 2016 on 'Strengthening Capacity of Government, Local Humanitarian Organizations and the Private Sector on Preparedness for Emergency Response' in six Asian countries: Cambodia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka. Each country has completed a sample baseline survey of selected at-risk geographical areas with the goal of investigating the current context and engagement of government entities, the private sector, local NGOs / civil society organizations, international organizations, academia, and the media in emergency response.

This report aims to summarize the findings in Sri Lanka in order to identify gaps and areas for strengthening capacities for a more effective humanitarian response.
