The European Union has launched one of the largest programs of development support in the Uva and Central Provinces.

The European Union will contribute 5.4 billion rupees to reduce poverty in the provinces by improving the income of poor people living in rural areas and helping to ensure that they have enough food to eat, even in times of hardship.

This grant, which is a part of the EU's wider program of support to rural development in Sri Lanka, will benefit rural communities in the Monaragala, Badulla, Nuwara Eliya and Matale Districts.

The program is expected to be operational for five years from 2017 to 2022.
