ANKARA - International Labour Organization (ILO) and the German Development Agency (KfW) signed a cooperation agreement for the Project “Promoting Decent Jobs for Syrians under Temporary Protection and Host Communities” undertaken to promote the transition to formal employment of refugees and host communities affected by migration. The Project aims to support the transition of target groups to formal employment through incentives to employers as well as enable Syrians under temporary protection to benefit from on-the-job-training programmes and access public employment services through one-stop offices to be established in ten provinces.

The cooperation agreement signed in last December includes two phases covering the period from December 2018 through June 2023. KfW will provide a fund of 28m EUR to the Project to be implemented by ILO.

The Project “Promoting Decent Jobs for Syrians under Temporary Protection and Host Communities” under the “Refugee Response Programme” will be implemented by the support of many institutions in the provinces of Ankara, Şanlıurfa, Hatay, Gaziantep, Adana, Mersin, Istanbul, Izmir, Bursa and Konya to promote the transition to formal employment of refugees and host communities affected by migration through employer incentive programmes.
