This handbook aims to provide practical step-by-step guidance and tools for designing peacebuilding results in employment programmes operating in fragile and conflicting contexts, particularly Jobs for Peace and Resilience (JPR) programmes. It was developed by the Coordination Support Unit for Peace and Resilience (CSPR) with the support of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs in the framework of a Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO) and ILO partnership to promote the peacebuilding dimension of employment programmes.

The approach presented, based on an ILO/PBSO/World Bank/UNDP Joint Statement on "Employment Programmes and Peace", suggests to conduct conflict and fragility analyses, develop specific peacebuilding outcomes, outputs and indicators, and establish baselines through key informant interviews and focus group discussions as ways to design projects by taking into consideration fragility factors, monitor their contribution to enhanced contact and opportunities and reduced grievances, and start to build evidence on the employment contribution to peace.

With the handbook being a working document all ILO practitioners, constituents and partners are welcome to test the different tools introduced, adapt them to their local context and share their suggestions for changes and improvements with the CSPR Unit (jpr@ilo.org).
