Promoting refugee and migrant entrepreneurship in East Africa, the Andean region, and the Middle East

The overall objective of the project is to strengthen the capacities of governments to support the long-term social and economic inclusion of refugees and migrants and enhance their positive economic and development impact on host countries. To achieve such purposes, countries have been selected based on governments' requests for the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) technical assistance to promote entrepreneurship development in their countries and deal with issues related to vulnerable groups.
