    Enabling Environment for Sustainable Enterprises (EESE) in fragile contexts

    25 April 2022

    In the wake of conflict or disaster, decent work is often considered as a secondary priority, when it can be the key to resolving many of the drivers of conflict and can be instrumental to restoring peace and resilience. Employment and self-employment enable women and men affected by conflict and disaster to establish sustainable livelihoods; support to the private sector is thus essential to facilitate inclusive recovery. Building on the work carried out by the Enabling Environment for Sustainable Enterprises (EESE) team and the Coordination and Support Unit for Peace and Resilience (CSPR), this publication sets out a series of guidelines for conducting EESE in fragile, conflict-affected, and disaster-prone contexts, considering both the conditions for improving the enabling environment and the process to conduct assessment.
