Brief information on the EPL project

Lebanon has been facing a severe financial and economic crisis since late 2019. Around 78 % of people live below the poverty line (UN, 2021). These challenges were exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic and the explosion in the Beirut port in 2020. Another crisis emerged as a result of the war in Ukraine, which has caused additional supply chain disruptions.

Young people in Lebanon are particularly affected by unemployment. While many have lost their job because of the crises, those coming into the labour market are of struggle with limited vacancies. In addition, young people often lack the skills required by those employers that are still hiring. In Lebanon, women face legal, economic, social, and cultural barriers that negatively impact their socio-economic participation. They are more likely to work in precarious jobs and be at risk of poverty. In addition, women mostly take over child-raising and housework. Disability is both a cause and an effect of poverty: poor people are more likely to have a disability because of the conditions in which they live, and disability can result in poverty due to limited opportunities for skills development and employment. Micro-, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) have been particularly affected by these crises, with many of them facing challenges to survive. Hence, they also struggle to offer income to their employees and owners.

Seeking to improve the employment situation of young Lebanese adults (aged 17 to 35), women, and people with disabilities in Beirut and Mount Lebanon, the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) commissioned the Project “Employment Promotion in Lebanon (EPL)”.

The project started implementing in February 2022 by identifying employment opportunities for young adults, women and persons with disabilities, and designing activities to increase their employability, facilitate their transition to decent employment or support their ability to stay in a job.

The project also has designed activities to enable the business environment and company-specific support for MSMEs in selected job-creating sectors to improve their competitive position, leading to better working conditions, safeguarding existing jobs and/or creating new ones.The project’s interventions are implemented through private sector economic and business associations as well as Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) that have experience in developing and implementing measures to promote employment and supporting MSMEs, and that can effectively serve the project beneficiaries.
