Sri Lanka

Aid organizations such as the Consortium of Humanitarian Agencies (CHA), are increasingly being granted access by the government to areas where nearly 100,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) have been resettled since June 2007. Some relief agencies now say they are able to work in the resettlement communities effectively even though they still have to operate within government guidelines. The guidelines require agencies to submit project proposals to the government agent (GA) who in turn refers them to the regional military headquarters. (IRIN)
