Integration of Refugees and Host Communities in Selected Localities subcomponent will include refugees and host communities living near selected cities in a joint public works and livelihoods program. 2. Foster Urban Youth Employment component supports key elements of Ethiopia’s National Plan for Job Creation, through fostering the development of human capital (Subcomponent 2.1) and strengthening labor market intermediation (Subcomponent 2.2). 3. Strengthen Social Assistance and Services for the Urban Poor and Destitute component will entail: 3.1: Expanding Permanent Direct Support (PDS) subcomponent which will provide a combination of cash and service link assistance to the poorest and 3.2.
