Partnership for improving prospects for forcibly displaced persons and host communities (PROSPECTS) - Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq

In Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq, the ILO under the PROSPECTS partnership is implementing interventions to address some of the critical decent work challenges facing both forcibly displaced persons and host communities, as part of efforts to enhance more sustainable livelihoods.

Partnership for improving prospects for forcibly displaced persons and host communities, also known as “PROSPECTS” is a unique four-year global partnership between the International Labour Organization (ILO), the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the World Bank that seeks to devise approaches for inclusive job creation, education and protection in the context of forced displacement.

Funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, the programme operates in eight countries across the East and the Horn of Africa and the Middle East, covering Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda.

The partnership seeks to bridge the humanitarian-development nexus, by tackling the immediate needs of vulnerable groups, and by addressing the longer-term challenges and the development needs of the countries that host them.
