Our Vision

Towards Planned, Sustained and Adored Urbanization

Our Mission

Promote Integrated Planning and implementation for the economic, social, environment and physical development of the declared urban areas.

Urbanization is an inevitable force and the world is rapidly urbanized. It is expected that a 60% of the world’s population will be ‘urban’ by 2030. Urban areas, especially the cities, are the engines of the economic growth and they also are the giants of consumption and the hearths of greenhouse gas emissions. Sri Lanka has not escaped from this inevitable force of urbanization. Urban Development Authority (UDA) endeavored to meet the challenges surging from such urbanization process and envisions planned, sustained and adored urban environments in the island Sri Lanka. UDA’s mission is to promote and to regulate the urban development process in order to facilitate the growth of the economy, protecting the natural and built heritage and improving the quality of life of all inhabitants. It has launched the mission through its island wide service centers, state-of the-art practices and the dedicated staff.
