Voices of Yemen
Alsayani Area, Ibb Governorate
Alsayani is a small community of 380 households where youth compose the biggest part of population. People mainly work with government as junior employees in the education sector, army, and security. They also work in the private and construction sector, and in livestock breeding. Alsayani area is at the center of the Alsayani district, south of Ibb governorate. The community is experiencing a critical influx of IDPs who, like all Yemenis, seek a permanent respite from the ongoing challenges and conflicts.
“Voices of” is a series of community-level consultations led by UNDP in Yemen using inclusive focus group discussions that seek to: identify their fragilities, prioritise opportunities and challenges, and highlight the vulnerability of community livelihoods assets to sustain the crisis.
