Policy Brief - WB and BMZ - Economic integration into host communities in times of crisis
Reports and Policy Papers
Policy brief jointly co-authored by Dr. Jana Kuhnt (German Development Institute) and Kirsten Schüttler (World Bank) on the economic integration into host communities in times of crisis. Access to labour market plays an essential role in allowing displaced populations to sustain their livelihoods and integrate into a host community. However, evidence shows that displaced people face specific challenges in integrating into the labour market. Covid-19 further aggravates these challenges. This policy brief presents evidence on interventions to ease the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the livelihoods of displaced populations, in the short term during lockdowns and in the medium and longer term under remaining restrictions and changed economic structures.
