DEV-pillar of the Regional Development and Protection Programme in the North of Africa - Phase II

The development pillar of the Regional Development and Protection Programme (RDPP) in the North of Africa aims to establish migrant-friendly inclusive services, fostering social cohesion and employment opportunities at community level and enhancing advocacy, research and knowledge-sharing. It will contribute to strengthen the resilience of displaced populations together with their host communities, by addressing socio-economic concerns and promoting a culture of rights, dialogue and social cohesion.

1) Ensure sustainable systems/programmes are established and enhanced to effectively deliver inclusive services, support social cohesion, and address potential tensions between host and displaced communities;

2) provide members of migrant and host communities with greater economic and livelihood opportunities within the local community;

3) build the capacity of governments, the private sector and local actors to adopt good practices at policy, legislative and institutional level, as well as evidence-based programmes and service delivery methods that respond to the protection, socioeconomic, and labour market inclusion needs of displaced groups.
