Chaloka Beyani, the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights of IDPs said,
while Sri Lanka has made progress in the resettlement of internally displaced persons after the end of the war in 2009, it still has to do more.


Chaloka Beyani said after having made impressive strides in rebuilding infrastructure destroyed during the conflict, post-conflict reconstruction in Sri Lanka should also focus on addressing durable solutions for all IDPs and those who have returned to their areas of origin on a comprehensive basis.

The statement said that government efforts together with humanitarian partners supported the return or settlement of over 450 thousand IDPs displaced during the conflict.
