By December 2006, upheavals of violence and periods of intense confrontation at local level became a recurring reality. The Ceasefire Agreement (CFA) is under severe strain.

But the future outlook gives further reason for serious concern, with the non-state actor publicly stating (November 27) that the peace process was defunct.
One year after Sri Lanka’s conflict ended, significant progress has been made on releases and returns from camps for internally displaced people (IDPs). Large-scale efforts are underway to re-establish essential services and livelihoods throughout the former conflict-affected areas in an effort to increase the sustainability of returns. At the same time, assistance needs to continue for the 60,000 IDPs still in camps, as well as for the 68,000 accommodated with host families, most of whom have limited access to assistance and services.
