The consequences of regional instabilities and widespread displacement have impacted employment and livelihood. Women in particular face significant challenges in accessing employment because of a combination of limited economic opportunities and individual and community-level factors.

The overall objective of the Safe Returns project is to build integrated, inclusive and resilient market systems by empowering women, people living with disabilities, the poor and other marginalized groups to participate and interact with markets.
