From guidelines to practice: a market-based approach to post-Covid recovery in forced displacement settings

Published by

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.

Main speakers:
Nadja Nutz, AIMS Technical Officer (PROSPECTS), ILO Lebanon
Robert Nyambaka, Senior Livelihoods and Economic Inclusion Officer, UNHCR Ethiopia
With introductions from:
Fernando Martinez Cure, AIMS Officer, ILO HQ
Ziad Ayoubi, Head of Livelihoods Unit, UNHCR HQ

The webinar took place on 30th July 2020
