How can the recovery response take into account the specific needs of refugees and host communities? What role can be played by the humanitarian-development-peacebuilding nexus in the immediate and long-term post-COVID-19 response?
This webinar, organised by the ILO Approach to Inclusive Market Systems (AIMS) and UNHCR Refugee Livelihoods, explores how the MSD approach can provide a useful framework for actors in this triple nexus to plan strategic, market-driven interventions to build back better, more resilient and inclusive economies in forced displacement settings.
Panelists shared their reflections and first-hand experiences from the field on how they are adapting their market-based approaches and programmes to contribute to the post-COVID-19 jobs and livelihoods recovery for refugees and host communities.
