Global refugee resettlement places are diminishing; only 0.5% of refugees access resettlement annually. Many in the Asia-Pacific region will never access traditional resettlement protection pathways, and during their protracted displacement (often 10+ years), they cannot access employment and they receive limited assistance to survive, placing them at risk of human trafficking and labor exploitation. The Asia-Pacific region is experiencing acute labor shortages. East Asia would have to import 275m people between the ages of 15 and 64 by 2030 to maintain the share of its population at working age*. Refugees need support to overcome the barriers to employment and employers need support to access this untapped labor source.
The Refugee Assets project uses an online job matching platform and end-to-end support services to provide employment to refugees in the Asia-Pacific and meet labour shortages in the region.
The final project report provides information on the methodology, activities, outputs, impact and dissemination of learning
