Legal Framework

At this stage, UNDP Yemen is in the stage of finalizing the Country Programme Action Plan (CPAP) for the period 2012-2015, which has been delayed due to political unrest throughout 2011.

The new CPAP will be a result of an alignment of the current Country Programme Document (CPD) with the Government Transitional Plan (2012-2014)

The new UNDAF (2012-2015) targets the vulnerable population and is geared to support acceleration of MDG progress using Human Rights Based Approach, mainstreaming conflict prevention and promoting interface between humanitarian and development.

The four UNDAF priority areas are

  • Inclusive & Diversified Economic Growth with a Social Dividend
  • Sustainable/Equitable Access to quality BSS to Accelerate progress on MDGs
  • Women & Youth Empowerment, and
  • Good Governance & Social Cohesion.

    With the adoption of the Gulf Co-operation Council Implementation Mechanism for Yemen, in November 2011, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Yemen realigned its resources and capacities to support the new transition priorities. Our main premise then was simple, and it remains so today: without a successful and genuine transition, it will be very difficult to think about lasting stability and development in Yemen.

    Since March 2015, Yemen has experienced intensive conflict in most of the governorates. The escalation is a follow up to the crisis that started in September 2014 when a large part of the territory, including Sana’a, the capital city, were taken over by militia. In July 2015, Yemen was declared an L3 emergency as the conflict resulted in an unprecedented humanitarian crisis.
