Outputs and Key Activities:

Through the Immediate Response Facility programme, UNRWA, UNICEF and the ILO will focus on maintaining Palestine refugee youth away from violent paths and having them gainfully occupied, through selected high-impact projects, which would stabilise their socio-economic environment. The project run by UNRWA and UNICEF will involve vocational training, the establishment of a youth empowerment and job creation programme, and micro-credit facilities. In parallel, the ILO will work towards the collection and analyses of data on the Palestinian labour force. Another aspect will be the improvement of information on the demand-side of the Lebanese labour market Its implementation will be undertaken through Lebanese national partners and NGOs, in coordination and conformity with existing programmes.
