The project “EU Support to Local Employment Partnerships – Phase II” (LEP II) supports improvement of the socio-economic situation and living conditions in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). It aims to contribute to better employability in local communities by supporting local employment partnerships (LEPs) as specific labour market mechanisms for increased access to formal employment.
Development of LEPs requires the participation of a minimum of five stakeholders and partners from a broad range of work areas and occupational fields. The objective of the project is for 20 LEPs to develop local employment development initiatives for EU funding and local resources, which will provide to train and reskill at least 1600 unemployed people. Up to 600 final beneficiaries will be employed after participating in the LEP’s interventions. Funding for the LEP II project is provided by the European Union (EU) in the amount of 4 million EUR and is being implemented by the International Labour Organization (ILO).
