ILO-UNHCR Partnership

ILO-UNHCR Joint Action Plan 2023-2025

This Joint Action Plan identifies joint areas of work and activities envisaged for 2023-2025 that will operationalize the ILO and UNHCR’s institutional collaboration.

This Joint Action Plan (JAP) for 2023 to 2025 reaffirms the ILO and UNHCR’s joint commitment to operationalizing the 2016 Memorandum of Understanding. It is a result of six regional consultations and involved over 180 colleagues in field and global teams of both agencies.
The JAP has three overarching goals framing our institutional collaboration: (i) improved governance of access to the labour market and decent work; (ii) strengthened implementation of rights related to decent work; and (iii) increased opportunities for jobs, skills and lifelong learning, income, and livelihoods. It also includes new thematic areas of work such as climate change and digital labour platforms as well as cross-cutting priority areas such as the meaningful engagement of refugees and host communities.
