In post-conflict situations, employment is a major contributing factor to achieve short-term stability, reintegration, socio-economic progress and sustainable peace. Job creation provides communities and individuals the means for survival and recovery and offers a constructive and positive alternative to social unrest.

Methodological and operational frameworks such as these Guidelines to promote Local Economic Recovery (LER) are conceived to support community development processes. They systematise good practices and lessons learnt in a way to enable decision makers to operate on the right track and take into consideration the main factors of success of economic recovery programmes.

The LER Guidelines in Post-conflict provide the conceptual framework and policy elements (Part I), operational means and references (Part II) and practical tools (Part III) to support field practitioners in planning and implementing post-conflict employment promotion based on the LER approach.
