Public Representations Committee (PRC) – UNDP, UNV



In 2016 one of the main achievement of V-Force was the involvement in the Public Representation Committee (PRC). The PRC was appointed by the Prime Minister to gather and compile the proposals of the public for reforming the constitution. UNV contributed to the process through a combination of UN Volunteers and a team of 60 V-Force volunteers and two NUN Volunteers. The volunteers operated as the first line of filtering and reviewing submissions. The V-Force volunteers had the opportunity to utilize their academic knowledge to identify and classify submissions under predetermined categories. Their work assisted the PRC in compiling the report of recommendations to the Parliament of Sri Lanka.
