UNDP Yemen Results 201304 Sep 2013
Following the signing of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) peace initiative in November 2011, the Republic of Yemen embarked on a two-year transition agenda. Against this backdrop, the United Nations crafted a Joint UN Framework to Support the Transition in Yemen, from 2012-2014, to provide an important basis for the UN’s assistance during this period.
In this context, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is supporting implementation of the GCC peace initiative through the Government of Yemen’s Transitional Programme for Stabilization and Development (TPSD). UNDP is, therefore, at the forefront of ongoing support to Yemen’s transition, coordinating the efforts of the international community, from elections, national dialogue and human rights to transitional justice, local governance and early recovery, including assistance to internally displaced persons (IDPs) and mine clearance.
