Economic self-reliance

and Recovery

Responding to crisis 

UNDP Yemen has scaled up the emergency crisis response and rural community resilience building through a bottom-up approach, using local systems, boosting capacities of the institutions to progressively resume and scale-up services delivery.  The expanded programmes aim to mitigate impact of the current crisis, restore livelihoods, increase short-term employment opportunities, revive local private sector and activate delivery of key social and basic service through small-scale infrastructure, access to finance and provision of renewable energy sources.  Partnership has been fostered with WB, EU and USAID to scale up the emergency response, resilience building and recovery programmes addressing priority needs of the affected people in almost all the governorates and over 90% of the country’s 333 districts.

Reviving basic services

Engage the hosting communities, IDPs and returnees in cash-for-work and cash-for-services activities to work jointly in rehabilitation and services delivery resumption of demand-driven communal facilities and productive assets while also contributing in trust building, acceptance each other and demonstrate joining of forces and comparative skills for improving the productivity and capacities of the community facilities and assets. Priority will be given for selection of types of cash-for-work/service activities that will improve the livelihoods assets of all parties involved, such as improving access to water, health, education, rural roads, irrigation systems and other critical social services.
