OUR FOCUS

Democratic Governance and
Peacebuilding

Responding to crisis

UNDP's Democratic Governance and Peacebuilding balances supply and demand, on one hand empowering individuals and communities to understand and claim their rights, while on the other hand helping institutions to realize those rights in an equitable, just, accountable, transparent, inclusive and participatory way.

UNDP projects include: supporting the nationwide clearance of mines and explosives while facilitating the safe movement of families away from frontlines; improving community access to security and justice; strengthening the ability of local providers to deliver public services; and, helping restore economic stability and social networks. Projects are implemented with a view to build public trust in Yemeni justice and security institutions, encourage wide and inclusive participation and promote local ownership.

Partners

In collaboration with the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen (SESGY) and UN partner agencies (UNICEF), UN Women, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), UNDP works closely with local actors to implement project activities.
