I. Situation Overview & highlights
•   The 2010 Presidential Elections concluded on 26 January, with official results announced on 27 January.
    The incumbent President Mahinda Rajapaksa claimed victory with 57.88% of the votes, while the
    opposition common candidate General Sarath Fonseka received 40.15%. Out of a total of 14,088,500
    registered voters, 10,495,451 (74.50%) exercised their right during the elections.
•   On 29 January, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon expressed relief that Sri Lanka’s Presidential
    Elections concluded relatively free of violence and he reiterated his call to the country’s political parties to
    abide by the official results and to pursue any concerns peacefully.
•   From 18 and 20 January, the UN Resident Coordinator / Humanitarian Coordinator (RC / HC) visited
    Vavuniya and Killinochchi. He held meetings with the UN District Team, the Inter-Agency group, military
    authorities and the Government Agents of Kilinochchi, Mullaitivu and Vavuniya. Furthermore, the RC/HC
    visited Nedunkerny, Puliyankulam (Vavuniya north) and Poonakary (Killinochchi), where he observed the
    current conditions of returnees, the progress of humanitarian demining operations and existing basic
    services.
•   Funding shortfalls from February for agencies operating in Menik Farm is expected to affect provision of
    services, including water bowsering, maintenance of sanitation facilities, provision of complementary food
    and education among others. Some services provided by the government may also be reduced, especially
    those supported by agencies.
•   The pass system continues in Menik Farm. It is estimated that approximately 20,000 persons are out of
    the camp at any one time. Mobility of IDPs has significantly improved with more than 270,000 passes
    issued between 1 December 2009 and mid-January 2010. Procedures for obtaining passes continue to
    vary between zones of the camp.
•   Some 527 adults suspected of association with LTTE have were released from government rehabilitation
    centres in Vavuniya in mid January. Of them, 191 individuals joined their families in Menik Farm and have
    been included in the ongoing assistance programme for IDPs. Others have proceeded to areas where their
    relatives have already returned. A release document with a three-month validity is issued by the Police on
    release, both confirming their release and serving as a proof of identity.
•   Returns to the Vanni were suspended during the election period. The first post-election convoy took place
    on 2 February to Poonakary, Kilinochchi District.
•   The Government Agent (GA) Mullaitivu carried out consultations with returnees in Thunukkai, Manthai
    East and Oddusudan Divisional Secretariat Divisions (DSD). The humanitarian community was also
    invited. Most returnees expressed satisfaction being able to restart their lives in their areas of origin,
    although several challenges were highlighted including: insufficient basic services; transportation
    limitations; damaged or destroyed properties and shelters; the need for cleaning of wells and secondary
    road cleaning, etc. Some returnee families reported that dependants were sent to more populated and
    serviced locations, as a result of the difficult conditions. The significant army presence was also
    highlighted. Indications of tensions among communities arriving at different stages of the return process
    had surfaced with the civil administration indicating that it would strengthening its role to support resolution
    of disputes.
•   Mine action operations continue across the Vanni through non-technical surveys and demining, with the
    Ministry of Nation Building and Estate Infrastructure Development continuing to allocate areas of work to
    agencies. Residential areas are being given priority to help expedite resettlement. If hazardous areas are
    identified in villages or immediate surroundings, mine clearance is initiated, whereas other areas may be
    demarcated for clearance in a later phase. The District Mine Action Office, supported by UNDP, carries out
    Quality Assurance throughout the process and the release document is signed by the Government Agent.
    Agencies have started pilot initiatives to establish community liaison focal points to strengthen mine risk
    education and risk management capacity at village level.

II. Sector Overview & highlights

SHELTER / NFI

Return Areas:
• IOM and UNOPS are engaged in provision of temporary and semi-permanent shelters in areas of return.
   The capacity for shelter construction in return areas is limited, and the need for more partners to support
   returned population in the sector is becoming more urgent. The most vulnerable across the return districts
   are being prioritized. The Vavuniya Protection Working Group finalised recommendations on selection of
   beneficiaries for transitional shelters. National guidelines on beneficiary selection are also under
   discussion at the Colombo level, to ensure that that criteria for beneficiary selection for different programs
   (UN-HABITAT, World Bank and Asian Development Bank) for construction of permanent shelters is in line
   with other shelter projects. Implementation of UN-HABITAT projects is due to start in February 2010.

Mannar:
• Partners are preparing for IDP returns to Madhu. Access remains a challenge in providing shelter
   assistance, particularly in Manthai West and Musali and broader agency involvement is needed to meet
   the urgent needs of returnees.

Vavuniya:
• No maintenance of tents and shelters was done in the reporting period. Only two agencies have funding
   through the end of February. An assessment of shelter maintenance needs is scheduled for February.
• Over 700 IDPs who were transferred at the end of November from the Pulmoddai Camp in Trincomalee
   remain in Zone 5, pending release for return to their places of origin. The Shelter sector has requested the
   zonal commander to transfer them to empty shelters in another zone, and include them in the regular
   distribution of relief items.
• The zonal commander for Site 7 has requested agencies to decommission shelters in 2 of the 5 blocks. It
   is expected that this site will be used for hosting IDPs suspected of affiliation with the LTTE.
• Discussion with the camp authorities is ongoing on progressive closure of zones, as return progresses.
   The Vavuniya Inter-Sector Group recommended that – after the Zones 0 and 1 - Zone 3 would be the
   preferred location option because of shelter conditions, WASH and other services availability. If an
   additional zone is required, Zone 4 is being recommended. Tents in Zone 4 are approximately one month
   newer than those in Zone 2 and, generally, in better condition. Continued monitoring and support to
   ensure no overcrowding as well as adequate service levels for health, water and sanitation, etc. as well as
   for other priorities such as child-protection and psychosocial support is required.
• The Shelter sector has discussed assistance to IDPs staying with host families with local government
   authorities. In cases where IDPs do not have a separate room in the host family’s house, it was agreed to
   provide an initial basic shelter similar to those in Menik Farm. For IDPs unable to return home in the near
   future, subsequent assistance, in the form of an extension to the host family’s house or a transitional
   shelter, was suggested. Three hundred and sixty six basic shelters have been constructed for IDPs staying
   with host families.
• NFIs for IDPs in Menik Farm were replenished in November 2009. Ongoing provision of hygiene kits,
   normally issued every two months, has become a potential gap as only UNICEF has indicated that they
   will continue hygiene kits after May. The frequency of distribution and the contents of the hygiene kits may
   be revised unless other actors come on board in time.
• There is also a gap in baby kits, which were provided by three agencies, which have indicated that funding
   shortfalls.



WASH

Jaffna District (including return areas):
• Agencies planning for latrine construction in return areas include UNICEF (Velanai DSD), IOM and Child
   Fund (Kayts DSD including 36 pre-schools); NRC and DRC (Tellipallai DSD) and UMCOR, which will cover
   the gaps in WASH facilities and complement the shelter response.
• As at 18 January, the National Water Supply and Drainage Board (NWSDB) together with WASH partners
   cleaned 580 wells in the Vavuniya, Kilinochchi, Mannar and Mullaitivu districts. In addition, 66 boreholes
   were repaired and 17 boreholes drilled in these districts.

Vavuniya District / Menik Farm:
• Unless new funds become available, the majority of agencies will need to stop operations at the end of
  February. Significant gaps in water bowsering (only 20,000 IDPs covered inclusive of government bowsers),
  toilet maintenance and decommissioning, waste management, hygiene promotion and hygiene kits have
  been highlighted.
• With existing funds, agencies are coordinating distribution of hygiene kits until the end of February. A total
  of 10,897 hygiene kits were distributed across all zones in the last two weeks. The Children’s Hygiene and
  Sanitation and Training (CHAST) programme has been scaled up, including the training of volunteers.
• Bowsering over the election period continued, with emergency back-up sources prepared on site as a
  contingency plan. A newly relocated Water Treatment Plant is now operating close to Zone 3, reducing
  bowsering distances. Although several agencies have increased bowsers capacity to address emerging
  gaps, this is unsustainable unless fresh funds are secured.
• Bathing spaces are needed in Zone 0 and 1, but are dependent on securing additional funds. Ongoing
  maintenance requirements in Zones 0 and 1 will be allocated among several agencies with capacity until
  the end of February.
• A total of 2,070 toilets have been decommissioned across the zones following the return of IDPs to the
  Vanni.


FOOD

Return areas:
• Assessments are underway in schools in Manthai West (Mannar District), Vavuniya North (Vavuniya
  District), Poonakary and Karachchi (Killinochchi District), and Thunukkai (Mullaitivu District) to launch school
  feeding programmes.

Vavuniya District / Menik Farm:
• During the election period, food distribution took place – for all zones – on 25 and 29 January.
• Almost all NGOs have run out of funding for the provision of complementary food. WFP will supplement the
  food basket with Corn Soya Blend (CSB) for IDPs in Menik Farm to provide an additional nutrition element
  beginning next week for one month – 750g per week per family.
• On 8 Monday, 3,000 Anagi stoves will be distributed in Zone 4 of Menik Farm on 8 February.


HEALTH & NUTRITION

Return areas:
• The Ministry of Health care & Nutrition, the Provincial Ministry of Health (North) and health partners
  conducted an assessment of ten selected hospitals in Mullaitivu & Kilinochchi districts. The assessment
  included evaluating the facilities’ structural integrity including water and sanitation facilities, and needs in
  medical equipments, supplies and human resources.
• In the return areas, transportation limitations are hampering access to health services, especially during the
  night-time. There are cases of patients needing to be referred to Jaffna Teaching Hospital or Vavuniya
  General Hospital, as the secondary and tertiary medical facilities such as Mallavi and Mulankavil Hospitals
  are being rehabilitated.
• The MOH with support from the health and developmental partners are working closely to address the
  equipment and medical staffing needs to provide basic health care services for the resettled population in
  the Vanni.
• Additional ambulances are needed to strengthen the emergency referral capabilities of base hospitals to
  district hospitals, including the need to supplement the MOH mobile medical clinics currently operational to
  serve remote resettlement areas.

Jaffna District:
• Therapeutic and supplementary feeding for undernourished children under five years of age continues in
   Ramavil camp and the host community.
• The dengue control committee comprising local government authorities, UN agencies, NGOs and
   community based organizations organized clean-up campaigns and awareness activities aimed at reducing
   the high number of dengue cases and minimizing the spread of the disease. Public announcements,
   posters, household awareness visits, drama and newspaper articles are currently underway in the district.

Vavuniya District / Menik Farm:
• The dengue situation in Menik Farm has improved, with only three cases reported from 16 to 22 January.
  Agencies have increased hygiene messages on dengue prevention and developed promotional material to
  support the Ministry of Health both in the camp and among the general population.
• More cases of mumps were reported in January 2010 than in December 2009, with most of the cases in
  Zones 3 and 5. None-the-less internal transfers of IDPs between zones may spread the infection to other
  zones. Most mumps patients are accommodated in Poovarasankulam Hospital and Menik Farm MSF
  Hospital.


PROTECTION (including Child Protection)

Return Areas:
• In Mullaitivu District, local authorities held consultations with returnees. Despite a general satisfied with
  being back in their districts of origin, challenges with regard to basic services, including access to health
  and education and facilities, rehabilitation of shelters, well-cleaning etc. were highlighted, especially for the
  most vulnerable. There was note of some returnees sending dependants to more populated and serviced
  locations as a result of the difficult situation. The need for additional deployment of civilian police, including
  women, and other government service providers, such as social services officers and probation officers to
  raise concerns with and to follow-up security and vulnerable cases was noted. Community tensions were
  noted, including reported allegations about misappropriation of cattle and disputes over common water
  resources. The civil administration emphasized their role in the resolution of such disputes.

Jaffna District
• The identification and follow-up of vulnerable IDP children continues.
• 2010 work plans for interventions with the returnee population and other target groups were discussed at
   the 28 January working group meeting.

Vavuniya District / Menik Farm:
• Mapping of protection-related activities and services in Menik Farm indicates a significant decrease in
  psychosocial activities for children as well as for assistance / support for vulnerable groups including
  disabled persons and monitoring of Sexual and Gender based Violence (SGBV) from the end February.
• Some NGO medical services, including the MSF-F hospital are being phased down. Given the sizeable
  population expected to remain in Menik Farm for the next months, maintaining sufficient capacity to address
  health care needs, in particular those with specific needs is crucial.
• On 16 January, authorities confirmed that nearly 200 of the over 500 adults released from rehabilitation
  sites had arrived in Menik Farm. Post-release monitoring indicated that these persons were not subject to
  additional movement restrictions and that they would be included in family assistance provision. However,
  advocacy continues at different levels on legal, procedural and institutional aspects related to the separation
  of persons with suspected affiliations with the LTTE and former combatants.
• Meetings of the SGBV Working Group and the periodic case conference took place with the participation of
  relevant authorities (including Probation, Ministry for Social Services, Women-Children Police Bureau,
  National Child Protection Authority etc.). While progress was noted on the proportion of referred clients
  seen, ongoing effort is required by the Police to collect evidence and investigate cases, including of
  domestic violence. Priorities include strengthening services and institutions in areas of return, while
  maintaining the referral network system at the Vavuniya / Menik Farm level.
• The new Women and Children Police desk in Zone 2, Menik Farm, was provided with equipment and
  furniture.


EDUCATION

• Since the start of the school term on 5 January, 79 of 299 schools re-opened in the Vanni. In Jaffna, 10 of
  the 112 displaced schools re-opened, with another 2 opening planned for the next month. Mapping of
  schools in the Vanni is ongoing to determine accessibility for support and monitoring. Many students have
  also stated attending host schools in Vavuniya, Manner, Trincomalee and Jaffna.

   Jaffna District:
   • On 20 January, Education partners discussed plans of support to the school system, particularly in the
      return areas. To date, 16,517 returnee children have enrolled in the five zonal schools. A mapping exercise
      is being conducted to assess the current capacities and funding available within the sector.

   Vavuniya District:
   • During the second week of January, the Rehabilitation Centre for adult separated IDPs at the Gamini school
     was closed. Nine schools continue to be used as premises shared between teachers and students, on one
     side, and adult surrenderees, on the other. The reduced space is a hindrance to the smooth functioning of
     school activities,


   LIVELIHOOD/EARLY RECOVERY

   Vavuniya District
   • Inter-agency assessments were carried out in the resettlement villages of Paranaddakal, Nochchimoddai,
     Nampankulam, Omanthai, Vepankulam, Arasamuripu, Rangethgama, Ganeshapuram and Salambaikulam
     (Vavuniya North DSD) and in Cheddipulavu, Moontrumuripu and Poovarasankulam (Vavuniya DSD).
   • FAO, UNHCR, WFP and UNDP have signed a Letter of Understanding to work together in the return areas
     in the Vavuniya, Mannar, Kilinochchi, Mullaitivu and Jaffna Districts. Accordingly, joint technical needs
     assessments have already taken place in the Paranadakkal (Vavuniya DSD) and Kanakarayankulam North
     (Vavuniya North DSD) villages.
   • In line with the decision taken during the Livelihood and Early Recovery coordination meeting on 5 January,
     a special working group has been formed to develop standard livelihood assistance packages.


   LOGISTICS
   • Plans are being finalized to establish a common UN base in Killinochchi, with agency office containers.
     Capacity needs will be re-evaluated as the compound is developed in order to best accommodate
     operational needs of UN agencies in the area.
   • Registration requirements at Medawachchiya checkpoint have been lifted which has eased movement
     between Colombo and Vavuniya Districts.
   • The Logistics Sector has completed an inventory of vehicles which remained or were handed over to the
     government, when agencies relocated from the Vanni in September 2008. OCHA is supporting liaison with
     the Government to facilitate handing back or destruction of the vehicles.
