World Bank to launch needs assessment survey in NorthEast

[TamilNet, Sunday, 19 January 2003, 17:40 GMT]
The World Bank said Sunday it is to launch a comprehensive needs assessment survey on Monday (January 20) in partnership with the United Nations and Asian Development Bank (ADB) to identify problems related to housing, education, infrastructure development, resettlement and employment in the northeast province, Colombo sources said.

The findings of the needs assessment survey will be forwarded to the international aid conference scheduled to be held in June in Tokyo, Japan, World Bank sources said.

Meanwhile the World Bank would start disbursing funds for the reconstruction of war ravaged northeast province from next month. The funds would come from the forty three million dollar emergency package offered in November last year, Colombo World Bank sources said.

Last Saturday the World Health Organization (WHO) signed an agreement with North East Provincial Council to improve the health sector in the province.
