There are no translations available.

Among the countries severely affected by adverse impacts of climatic change, Sri Lanka has been ranked fourth in the Global Climate Risk Index for the year 2018. Considering the challenges of climate change, Sri Lanka has given special emphasis on formulating activities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, strengthen country's climate change adaptive capacity as well as capacity building of vulnerable sectors and communities.

In order to implement the above activities in an integrated manner, and to meet national obligations on international environmental agreements, Sri Lanka has already commenced a series of climate actions to seek international scientific, technical and financial assistance.


In this context, it has been identified International Council for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF); a pioneering research institute of agroforestry, as a suitable technical agency to assist the Government of Sri Lanka to address food security issues originated through the climate change impacts while safeguarding Sri Lanka's abundant agroecosystems. Accordingly, Cabinet of Ministers granted approval to enter into a Host Country Agreement with ICRAF. As an initial step for entering into an agreement with ICRAF, the Letter of Intent has been signed between the Government of Sri Lanka and ICRAF during the 24th Session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 24) on 4th December, 2018 in Katowice, Poland. On behalf of the Government of Sri Lanka, Mr. Anura Dissanayake, Secretary to the Ministry of Mahaweli Development and Environment has signed the Letter of Intent with Dr. Tony Simons, Director General, ICRAF.
