This project required an analysis of the Urban Development Policy and regulatory framework of Sri Lanka, to thereby identify potential urban operators who would qualify for financing by the French Development Agency (AFD). The process involved the preparation of an overview of the urban sector for possible AFD operations in Sri Lanka, and the identification of urban operators who are befitting of long-term partnerships with the AFD. This was followed by the analysis and evaluation of projects in the pipeline, identifying opportunities for the AFD to partner.
