Under “Partnership for Improving Prospects for Forcibly Displaced Persons and Host Communities” (PROSPECTS) project supported by the Government of the Netherlands, the ILO also partners with UNICEF, UNHCR, WB and IFC to develop a joint and fully integrated approach to respond to the forced displacement situation. In Sudan, the Partnership, focuses on delivering change within the South Sudanese refugee and host community populations in East Darfur, specifically Assalayaa settlement and El Nimir camp and West Kordofan, specifically along the Keilak-Kharasana corridor and in the remote El Meiram settlements.
GENERAL BACKGROUND INFORMATION
While the political context in Sudan witnessed a historic shift in 2019, the humanitarian, development and economic situations have been subject to a continuous and significant decline. Due to more than a decade of economic sanctions and decades of violent conflict, especially in Darfur and Kordofan states, support from financial institutions and development funding is limited. To address these pressing issues the ILO and its partners have received funding from the Government of the Netherlands to implement a new Partnership agreement that will help move humanitarian support towards more sustainable development assistance.
Under the PROSPECTS Partnership, the ILO will be working with our national counterparts, sister agencies, and other stakeholders to strengthen access to local labour markets for the forcibly displaced, IDPs, host communities that are productive, deliver a fair income, provide security in the workplace, and social protection for families. This Partnership will be grounded in results-based and country-led approaches. It aims to develop and implement evidence-based solutions, tailored to each context, as well as to test and learn from innovative operational solutions.
To do this, the Partnership has been gathering and archiving critical planning documents, maps, graphs, tabular reports, and other Arabic-based resources. These archived planning documents represent a diverse profile of technical, policy, strategic, and financial documents that will need to be translated on an as-required basis. Translation from Arabic to English is critical for the effective design, development, and implementation of locally relevant technical assistance interventions. Translation will also help to expand common understandings and communication with stakeholders.
