Uganda has been hosting refugees and asylum seekers since achieving its independence in 1962. The country has been praised for having one of the most progressive and generous refugee laws and policy regimes in the world. In fact, the 2016 United Nations Summit for Refugees declared Uganda’s refugee policy a model. The 2006 Refugee Act and 2010 Refugee Regulations allow for integration of refugees within host communities with refugees having access to the same services (education, health, water and sanitation) as nationals. They have freedom of movement and are free to pursue livelihood opportunities, including access to the labour market and to establish businesses.<br /><br /> <br /><br /> To sustain and expand this progressive and generous out-of-camp refugee approach Uganda seeks to strengthen the resilience and self-reliance of refugees and their host communities. A key challenge facing Uganda is private sector engagement, to take advantage of the growing market and to leverage the additional human capital. <br /><br />

As one of the most vulnerable nations to climate change, Rwanda is acutely aware of the challenges that lie ahead. For this reason, the country established a groundbreaking investment fund to support green projects that can realize Rwanda’s vision of becoming a low-carbon and climate-resilient economy by 2050. The fund has created over 100,000 jobs and mobilized around US$100 million and is a leading example of the impact that well-managed climate financing can have.

Bhutan turns an environmental challenge into employment opportunity for a young population desperate for re-entering the job market. An eco-friendly initiative offers training and employment to young people in drug rehabilitation centers and contributes to reduce the environmental impact of 100 tones of paper waste a year. The solution promotes the use of locally produced egg trays from recycled materials to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and reliance on imported carbon intense trays transported from other countries. It also contributes to the economic and social reintegration of the youth. Neighboring countries are looking how they can replicate and scale up the success of Bhutan’s initiative. <br /><br />

Au cœur de ce programme, l’approche a été d&#039;investir sur les détenus pour contrer le processus de radicalisation au sein et au-delà des prisons du Royaume du Maroc. L&#039;approche a été testée dans 7 prisons et vise à atteindre 22 000 détenus. Il s’agit d’engager les détenus à risque élevé dans deux processus parallèles d&#039;inclusion sociale qui se renforcent mutuellement : les impliquer dans des débats constructifs avec le personnel religieux sur les réalités destructrices du discours radical, et leur conférer des moyens de subsistance qui leur permettent de générer des revenus, des emplois sécurisés et donc assurer une réinsertion pacifique dans la société.<br /><br /> <br /><br /> L&#039;approche innovante et novatrice de l&#039;utilisation des éducateurs pairs a été élaborée et mise en œuvre en partenariat avec la Rabita Mohammadia des Oulémas (RMO), une institution religieuse renommée à l&#039;échelle nationale et internationale, pour diffuser des connaissances religieuses éclairées qui contribuent à contester et à déconstruire le discours radical et à combattre l&#039;extrémisme. <br /><br /> <br /><br /> Avec l&#039;appui du programme, l&#039;administration pénitentiaire a pu professionnaliser pleinement des unités de production avec des machines, des outils et des matières premières de haute technologie. Ces ateliers ont permis aux détenus d’acquérir des qualifications à des emplois professionnels à part entière, et ainsi faciliter leur réinsertion sociale à leur sortie de prison.<br /><br />

Al Hoceima National Marine Park is rich in Mediterranean biodiversity. However, artisanal fishersmen live in a precarious socio-economic situation (such as poverty and unemployment). The artisanal fishing sector is indeed weakened by the lack of infrastructure and unsustainable human practices (such as use of driftnets, dynamite fishing, poaching, and disturbance to ospreys). In addition to this, the fishing sector is vulnerable to climate change. The combination of these factors impacts the stock of fishery resources and affects negatively the fishers’ livelihoods. <br /><br /> <br /><br /> In this context, the applied solution consists of the integration of international environmental standards in fishing in accordance with the Mediterranean policies and the prohibition of use of driftnets (major cause of the decline in fish stocks) which are replaced by sustainable fishing gears (traps in Alfa and selective long-lines). The solution also supports the creation of a network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) for sustainable fisheries, and mobilized fishers around the eradication of the illegal fishing.<br /><br /> <br /><br /> A revolving fund for the acquisition of sustainable fishing material is also part of the solution. This fund supports the maintenance of the fishing activities while making them more sustainable, thus avoiding a serious economic and social crisis.<br /><br /> <br /><br /> As a result, 3,000 artisanal fishers benefited from an ecosystem-based participatory planning program to help them identify the main challenges threatening the sustainability of the fishery sector and innovative responses to tackle theses challenges. The fishers now play a key role as a part of a Monitoring and Surveillance Committee which is in charge of the fight against illegal fishing in the Marine Park of Al Hoceima.<br /><br />

This solution helped transform the waste management of hospitals in Nepal towards a safe and environmental system using awareness and capacity building of the public through training and media campaigns, as well as training of helathcare practitioners. Three model hospitals inspired others to consider safer and environmentally sound ways to deal with hazardous and non-hazardous health care waste. All activities combined contributed to the enactment and implementation of national waste management policies across the healthcare sector, and resulted in three international and national awards. <br /><br />
