Impact of COVID-19 in Arab States

The project conducts assessments on the impact of COVID-19 pandemic in three Arab States: Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon. The assessments will help to better understand the scope of the crisis and some of the pressing issues and concerns which workers from different walks of life are facing today, such as their current employment status, source of income, expenditure channels and poverty levels. These results can help us design new interventions, which meet the needs of these workers.

Workplace qualifications for older employees

Although increased education proves to have a positive employment effect, we know that few older employees in Norway participate in further education.

The report will describe the knowledge situation for children and adolescents in the age group 0-20 years.
