Brief Guide - PDF

The Centre for Policy Alternatives (CPA) has compiled a brief guide on land rights in Sri Lanka which is aimed at creating awareness among the public on the legal status regarding land ownership and control and remedies available. CPA produced a similar guide in 2011 addressing land issues in the North and East of Sri Lanka in the immediate post war context. The present guide addresses land issues across Sri Lanka including continuing trends of problems caused by a lack of documentation and illegal and arbitrary land acquisitions and evictions. The guide will be available in Sinhala, Tamil and English.
