In line with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), whose primary objectives to leave no-one behind, protect the environment, and ensure peace, investigating who these people are in terms of their livelihood, skills, and other economic characteristics is imperative. The data was collected through a face-to-face structured questionnaire. The study findings suggested some valuable information to assist the government in delivering inclusive refugees' rights to work.
