Welcome to IOM Sri Lanka

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) works to encourage social and economic development through migration, and remains committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society. IOM in Sri Lanka works in close partnership with national and local government institutions, non-governmental agencies, grass-roots, community organizations and the donor community, to assist national entities to address pressing and complex challenges in migration management, to respond to the needs created by humanitarian emergencies in the country and to ensure improved living conditions for vulnerable communities.

IOM Sri Lanka Country Strategy 2018 - 2020

Building upon the achievements and lessons learnt during the last country strategy cycle, IOM Country Strategy 2018 - 2020 articulates IOM’s strategic approach to addressing current and emerging migration realities in Sri Lanka through priority areas of cooperation to be pursued in its country programming.

At the country level, IOM’s strategic priorities support Sri Lanka Vision 2025 – the country’s main development framework, and contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Framework (UNSDF) 2018-2022, which IOM is a part of.  Many of the activities outlined in this document build upon current programming and partnerships that IOM has established under the previous country strategy.
