ILO-UNHCR Joint Action Plan 2023-2025

The International Labour Organization (ILO) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) have complementary mandates and expertise in supporting forcibly displaced people’s access to the labour market, decent work conditions, and adequate social protection as part of the larger work on safeguarding their rights and supporting the communities that host them. With this, in July 2016, the ILO and UNHCR signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to deepen and formalize our partnership through eight identified common priorities, including promoting inclusive and equal treatment in access to decent work and livelihoods, countering economic exploitation and eradicating child labour. This 3rd ILO-UNHCR Joint Action Plan (JAP) for 2023 to 2025 reaffirms our commitment to operationalizing the MoU. This comes at an important time for the international community’s efforts in responding to crisis situations, and moving towards durable solutions, and will help to inform the 2nd Global Refugee Forum (GRF) taking place in December 2023.
