Training course

Market-based livelihood interventions for refugees

This 5-day course will teach participants how to design and facilitate incentive-based market development programmes that are economically viable and that comply with refugees' protection needs.

This training has been initiated and developed by the ILO and the UNHCR as a response to the lack of a specialized training on market-based livelihood interventions for refugees. It applies the “Making markets work for the poor” approach and draws upon experiences and lessons learnt from joint UNHCR-ILO pilot projects that tested the added value of market assessments and value chain analyses for the promotion of livelihoods of refugees in a number of countries, including Costa Rica, Egypt, Zambia and South Africa.

The training will be delivered by a team of experts from the ILO, the UNHCR and the ITC-ILO who combine technical input with applied learning methodologies.

This training is relevant for humanitarian and development practitioners who work with refugees and displaced persons, who will learn how to transform short-term livelihoods programming into sustained employment opportunities.
