Humanitarian and development actors are increasingly recognising that livelihood interventions for refugees need to be based on a solid understanding of market trends and demand, and identify ways to develop markets for both refugees and host communities.
This training has been initiated and developed by the ILO and the UNHCR as a response to a lack of a specialized training on market-based livelihood interventions for refugees. It applies the “Making markets work for the poor” (M4P) approach and draws upon experiences and lessons learnt from joint UNHCR-ILO pilot projects that tested the added value of market assessments and value chain analyses for the promotion of livelihoods of refugees in a number of countries, including Costa Rica, Egypt, Zambia and South Africa.
The fee to attend the course is Euro 2,180, which includes board and lodging on our Campus, training material, registration fees and insurance. Travel expenses are not included
