November 28, 2002
- On November 28 (Thursday), the Government of Japan and the United Nations (UN) decided to extend the total of 1,038,181.29- dollar assistance through the Trust Fund for Human Security to the project "Employment Generation and Economic Recovery through the Rehabilitation and Maintenance of Infrastructure Using Labour-Based, Equipment-Supported Technology" to be implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
- The goal of this project, which is implemented in the Guadalcanal, Western and Malaita Provinces in Solomon Islands, is to provide income generating opportunities for ex-combatants and internally displaced persons (IDPs) who had lost jobs as a result of the conflict and to reintegrate them into the society. Ex-combatants and IDPs will be employed for the work of rehabilitation and maintenance of roads, bridges and community facilities destroyed by the conflict.
- This project is expected to rehabilitate infrastructure in communities and to alleviate unemployment among ex-combatants and IDPs and help them reintegrate into the society.
