Country Programme Document (CPD) for Yemen 2012 – 2015
Nevertheless, implementation challenges in Yemen remain, including security threats and limited acces s to some parts of the country, insufficient institutional capacities at all levels, and slow decision - making processes. The UNDAF 2007 - 2011 midterm review indicated that, with the exception of humanitarian assistance, no interventions were targeted to mitigate protracted social conflicts. The review identified (a) climate change; (b) conflict-sensitive programming and (c) food security as emerging issues. It recommended the inclusion of initiatives for social conflict prevention and youth empowerment, as well as partnership with the business sector as a way of contributing to economic diversification and job creation.
The results of this review informed the elaboration of the present country programme document (CPD). The review also recommended alignment of the UNDAF to the national planning cycles. The United Nations country team agreed to make 2012 to 2015 the term of the new UNDAF so that subsequent cycles are fully aligned.
