I was the National Program Coordinator (NPC)of the IFAD funded "Post Tsunami Coastal Rehabilitation & Resources Management Program and Post Tsunami Livelihood and Partnership Development Program, implemented under the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources of Sri Lanka for two years. The two programs were funded by the IFAD and the total value of the programs was USD 40 million. The Programs had commenced operations in June 2006 but at the time I assumed duties in August 2008 as the NPC, , the two programs were at dying stage due to various managerial and implementation issues. The progress of the two programs was less than 5% when I assumed duties. But I am very happy because I was able to convert these programs in to well performing stage within first 6 months and I could complete the Post Tsunami Livelihood and Partnership program within two years. I raised the performance of the Post Tsunami Coastal Rehabilitation and Resource Management program up to 52 % during the same two year period.
I had to leave the post in August 2010 due to ....? It is public Service.
I stated Project management carrier as on part time basis in addition to my real post in the Public Service.
