Employment intensive investment in countries
EIIP has experience in more than 70 countries, mostly low- and middle-income countries in Africa, the Arab States, Asia and Latin America. In many of these countries, the programme has remained active over prolonged periods of time, often progressing from emergency response to sustainable development. Over the last 10 years, the programme has implemented about $300 million worth of development cooperation projects, mostly in Africa and Asia.
Briefs on regional and country projects in the infrastructure sector executed with technical assistance from the Employment Intensive Investment Programme are described for the different regions and countries. A list of additional documents for further reading can be found at the bottom of each page.
