Refugees Empowerment through Markets Initiative (REMI)

    Información general


    The initiative channels ITC’s trade-led support to create economic opportunities for displaced people. Since 2017, ITC has worked with over 1,500 refugees, internally displaced persons (IDPs), returning migrants, the local communities and their businesses to facilitate connection and access to markets. The initiative is based on five pillars:

    1.      Building market competitiveness and access at the firm level

    2.       Strengthening institutions and business support services for displaced persons

    3.      Informing and shaping trade and business policy that supports displaced persons and host communities 

    4.      Sharing knowledge and good practices 

    5.      Deepening and expanding participation of private sectors and inclusive market systems 

    Through these pillars the initiative is working towards its vision of increasing economic opportunities and livelihoods for 20,000 people in displacement-affected areas by 2025.
