Conduct Pulse survey on Economic Crisis on Women's Rights in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka is currently experiencing the worst economic crisis in its post-independent history, exacerbated by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The situation has had a disproportionate impact on women, who have limited access to legal protections and have been subjected to rule of law and human rights violations. As a result, the UNDP Sri Lanka's Flagship Portfolio on SDG16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions is taking action to improve the effectiveness, responsiveness, and accountability of key institutions to provide people-centered services, with a particular focus on women affected by the crisis.
OBJECTIVE AND SCOPE OF INTERVENTION
The survey's objectives encompass a thorough examination of the economic crisis's impact on women's human rights in Sri Lanka, going beyond sexual and gender-based violence concerns. It seeks to generate evidence-based recommendations that enable the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka (HRCSL) to intervene and improve service delivery within its mandate. While the survey questions should cover the socio-economic impact of the current country context, on the rights of women in Sri Lanka, it should not be limited to sexual and gender-based issues.
To gather comprehensive data, the survey aims to source information from various channels, including women in the general public across the entire island, the extensive network of grassroots-level civil society organizations of HRCSL, and the regional offices of the HRCSL. The proposed minimum sample size for the survey includes 1,200 women respondents from the general public and 300 individuals from the HRCSL's regional offices and CSO networks. The survey's findings are expected to shed light on the specific challenges and vulnerabilities experienced by women, particularly in relation to their rights.
