Abstract

Despite a plethora of published research on risk management of development projects in developing countries, limited attention has been paid to risk management of grass-root level development projects. This study aims to investigate the relationship of self-motivation and readiness of village organization leaders on risk management in a community- driven development (CDD) projects (i.e., grass-root level) in Sri Lanka. Data were collected from 104 village organization leaders from two districts in Sri Lanka through a survey questionnaire. Empirical results indicate both self-motivation and the readiness of village organization leaders have a relationship with project risk management. These findings are of importance to policy makers, implementers, and recipients for enhancing the sustainability of future CDD projects in Sri Lanka and other developing countries.
