The Partnership focuses on three critical areas of intervention that enable forcibly displaced persons to overcome their specific vulnerabilities and host communities to pursue their own development efforts in transformed environments. These are: education and learning; jobs and social protection; and protection and legal status. To ensure coherent and mutually reinforcing action, the ILO connects its work under each of these pillars through cross-cutting interventions implemented in close coordination, collaboration and complementarity with the other Partners.

PROSPECTS, with an internal closely weaved design, is pioneering a “One ILO” integrated and innovative approach to project design, bringing together a number of ILO technical departments (involved in the activities listed below), field offices, DDG/P and PARDEV.

  1. Meaningful youth engagement

  2. Skills

    Decent work gives people perspectives and stabilizes communities that have been transformed by a large influx of newcomers. To obtain a decent job, people need to have the right skills to find work, to build their career, to contribute productively to society and integrate into local economic life. To support employability and refugees’ access to labour markets, PROSPECTS is putting in place several skills-related interventions.
