Pays : Ethiopie

Date : Adoption date 12/12/2017

Objectif
The overall objective is to : Ease pressure on Ethiopia as a major host country for refugees and increase refugee self-reliance by fostering sustainable, integrated and self-reliant solutions for both refugees and host communities in Ethiopia in response to their developmental needs and aspirations.
The specific objectives of the action are : 1. Enhanced organisational and technical capacity of ARRA, MoFEC, and other relevant Ethiopian government institutions to organise and manage the CRRF governance structure in Ethiopia, and to implement sustainable and development-oriented responses as part of the CRRF at federal, regional and local level. 2. Facilitated transition of targeted refugees from living in refugee camps to benefiting from integration into the Ethiopian society by supporting a selected number of refugees in the Jijiga area in a transition phase through the existing national social protection programme the “Productive Safety Net Programme” (PSNP). 3. Strengthened socio-economic development and better employment opportunities for refugees and host communities in the Jijiga area of Somali Regional State by supporting and piloting the implementation of Ethiopia’s refugee pledges, in particular those related to local integration of refugees, expansion of the Out-of-Camp policy and the “Documentation Pledges”.
