Sri Lanka: reducing Colombo’s flood risk while creating a more livable city

15 Sep 2016, WB

Almost 50% of the poorest 40% of Sri Lanka's population live within 30km of urban areas.

The Metro Colombo Project has been supporting the government to reduce flooding, and rehabilitate, improve and maintain infrastructure.
