ILO and UNDP have since November 2020 been organising joint workshops and podcasts on the impact of COVID-19 on various sectors. All activities are carried out by and under two projects, namely the “COVID-19 Resilience and Response” Project implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) with funding from the Government of Japan, and the Project “Decent Work Opportunities for Refugees and Host Communities in Turkey” implemented by the International Labour Organization (ILO) with funding from the US Department of State, Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (USPRM).
