Handbook for Self-reliance

The Handbook for Self-reliance provides UNHCR field-based staff and their partners with an invaluable operational tool for formulating and implementing self-reliance strategies. Based on the realization that employment and the opportunity to make a sustainable income are building blocks not only for self-reliance but also for local economic growth, the Handbook also contains practical material that will guide Field Offices to promote employment-oriented strategies in conflict-affected settings. These were developed with the support of the International Labour Organization (ILO).
