Résumé l
Responding to the continuing Syrian refugee crisis and the current health and economic crisis in the country, it is more important than ever to strengthen the resilience of local host communities by providing job opportunities and improved capacity for livelihood, economic development, infrastructure, and service provision. Phase IV of the EIIP Lebanon, with ILO as the sole implementer in coordination with MoL and MoSA, builds on the lessons learned of Phases I,II and III. The primary beneficiaries of the project are Lebanese host community members and Syrian refugees in the most vulnerable areas of Lebanon who will benefit from temporary employment opportunities through the construction activities with an equal-opportunity approach for women and men. The core strategy of the project is to use the Employment Intensive Investment Programme approach (EIIP) including Local Resource Based Technology (LRBT) and Decent Work Principles (DWP) to rehabilitate and maintain public infrastructure, complemented by training for contractors and capacity building with public institutions. The strategy will however be adapted to the new context including the deepening economic crisis with a larger share of poor Lebanese and the health crisis resulting from the COVID-19 outbreak and including a special response to the Beirut Port explosion.
