Minister of Youth Affairs, Project Management and Southern Development Sagala Ratnayaka recently visited Citra, Sri Lanka’s first social innovation lab, to engage in a discussion about moving forward with collaborative initiatives between the Ministry and the innovation lab.

Citra is a joint initiative between the Ministry of Science, Technology, Research, Skills Development and Vocational Training, and Kandyan Heritage, and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Sri Lanka. 

Citra uses foresight and innovation tools to prototype and test development solutions to ensure they are agile and holistic. Its work is aligned to the national development priorities of the country and also works towards bringing in greater citizen engagement to the formulation of development solutions.
