An ad hoc economic impact assessment of three infrastructure projects (irrigation network in Deir al Ahmar-Baalbeck; a water reservoir in Hammana; agricultural roads in Tal Abbas-Akkar) implemented during the first two phases of EIIP gave the following results:
ILO in partnership with UNDP has complemented EIIP infrastructure projects with specific “Activities to increase women involvement in the Employment Intensive Infrastructure Programme in Lebanon”.
EIIP has completed more than 20 infrastructure projects in 55 municipalities. Interventions which were selected based on priority and labour generation potential.
The EIIP builds capacity of both private and public sector to plan and implement EIPs. Awareness sessions are organised for public officials while private contractors undergo training in LRBT and Decent Work Principles. The LRBT Certificate is a pre-requisite to participate in an EIIP Tender. Orientation sessions are also offered to external agencies on the Social Safeguards Framework.
EIIP has carried out a number of studies and surveys to measure impact and to learn lessons to improve implementation and future project design. Below are some of the highlights from Workers and Perception Survey 2021.
The EIIP has developed several guidelines for use in the programme and for use by other actors, and carried out a number of studies and surveys to measure impact and to learn lessons to improve implementation and future project design. See Publications page.
