Conduct Infrastructure Needs Assessment for the Justice Sector in Sri Lanka.
UNDP Sri Lanka’s Flagship Portfolio on SDG16, Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions brings together inclusive governance and peacebuilding work under one umbrella. The Portfolio is implemented by UNDP as part of its Country Programme and the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework and enables the provision of cohesive and integrated support to Sri Lanka.
Under this portfolio, UNDP in partnership with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has launched a comprehensive Justice Reforms Programme (JURE Programme) supported by the European Union. The Programme contains a holistic package of support to the justice sector in Sri Lanka and is being implemented in close consultation and partnership with key justice sector institutions including the Judicial Service Commission, Ministry of Justice, Attorney General’s Department and Legal Aid Commission of Sri Lanka
OBJECTIVE AND SCOPE OF INTERVENTION
UNDP and UNICEF intend to identify the gender sensitive, victim-centric, and child-friendly infrastructure needs of the justice sector, in order to provide strategic and sustainable support that can be provided jointly under the JURE project. The specific objective of this project is to perform a comprehensive and swift assessment of the infrastructure needs of High Courts, Magistrate Courts, and District Courts of Sri Lanka. The assessment will evaluate the extent to which the courts have been made accessible to litigants of all ages, genders, and those with special needs (i.e., persons with disabilities), in order to plan interventions.
The service provider will conduct an infrastructure needs assessment with the collaboration of the Engineering Division of the Ministry of Justice, to identify the level of accessibility provided to victims through court infrastructure, the degree of child-friendliness, and the requirements of individuals with disabilities, thereby assisting the Engineering Division of the Ministry of Justice to plan and implement targeted developments. The assessment must take a collaborative, and thorough approach, with a clear focus on following regional and international norms, standards, and best practices related to child-friendly and victim centric accessible infrastructure, including for people with a disability.
