The Refugee Economies Programme is pleased to announce the launch of our new short documentary film, Dollo Ado: Building Refugee Economies. The film highlights the key findings and lessons learned from the multi-year collaboration of the IKEA Foundation, UNHCR, and the Government in the Dollo Ado refugee camps. Drawing upon our impact evaluation, Building Refugee Economies: An evaluation of the IKEA Foundation's programmes in Dollo Ado, published by the Refugee Studies Centre in 2020, the film provides a unique insight into the livelihoods programmes that have been implemented in the five Dollo Ado refugee camps.
Join us virtually on 25 March 2021 15:00 - 16:00 (CET) to learn how these innovative programmes, implemented by the IKEA Foundation and UNHCR, have transformed refugee and host community self-reliance in Dollo Ado. The event will be hosted by the IKEA Foundation, and will include a short clip from our new documentary. We encourage you to watch the full film (available below) before the event.
