Project: Promotion of economic perspectives for refugees and host communities in Türkiye (PEP) Project


The Promotion of Economic Prospects for Refugees and the Host Community in Türkiye (PEP) project, commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, aims to enhance the employment prospects of Syrian refugees and members of the Turkish host community.

PEP adopts an integrated approach, centered on three key areas: enhancing access to skills and employment, building capacities of micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), and fortifying the overall business environment. Focused on meeting labour market demands, the project facilitates formal employment by assessing and aligning participants’ skills with opportunities. Employability is furthered through language and vocational training, along with workshops on ethics, legal rights, and safety. To stimulate workforce demand, the project supports Turkish and Syrian-owned MSMEs with business development services, promoting sustainable growth and job creation. Supporting both the supply and demand sides of the labour market, PEP enhances skills and assists MSMEs, ensuring a balanced approach that fosters a competitive, innovative, and resilient private sector, leading to increased, higher-quality job opportunities.

PEP engages in collaboration with a diverse range of stakeholders, such as ministries, municipalities, universities, public institutions, the private sector (including chambers and business associations), and a network of both national and international nongovernmental organisations (NGOs).
