The ILO and the International Training Centre have accumulated extensive experience in the management and delivery of projects related to the promotion of decent work as a way towards building lasting peace and resilience in fragile contexts.

In this page, you will find a collection of information on such projects, including focus areas, geographical scope, and where available some key insights on the main results.

Projects developed and implemented specifically by the International Training Centre of the ILO, normally relating to training activities, can be found under the blue markers. Projects designed and implemented by the ILO team on Fragility and disaster response are under  the green marker. Orange markers are projects carried out autonomously by the ILO country offices. Purple markers identify projects carried out by our partners.

Particular attention is paid to the project “Promoting rural youth employment in Afghanistan through entrepreneurship education and vocational training – AFG/15/01/NOR”, funded by the Norwegian Government,  under the auspices of which this web platform has been created. More info on the project can be found below.

Where available, publications and reports have been uploaded in our online library and can be accessed by following the link provided in the map pointer.
