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


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.

Main objectives

Specific Objectives: 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; and 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.
