The project aims to assist the Government of Yemen to effectively deal with the humanitarian and developmental problems of mines, Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) and the new threat from Improvised Explosive Devices (IED)
The Community Driven Early Recovery programme seeks to contribute to the Government of Yemen’s plans to stabilize the situation in Sa’ada and advance peace through initiating emergency action plans for reconstruction and recovery while at the same time laying the ground for a longer-term economic and social development agenda.
The project aims to undertake a comprehensive Livelihoods Assessment in conflict affected and most vulnerable governorates in Yemen. The results of the Assessment will inform the design and development of two year Livelihoods and Local Economic Recovery Programmes for affected households, especially women and youths (girls and boys) in key governorates in the country.
The context in Yemen has changed significantly over the last few years. The country has faced repeated conflict and crisis since 2004, which generated a different set of needs and tested the population’s capacity to cope, especially among the most vulnerable. The root causes of conflict and disputes are the lack of equal development, real freedom, citizenship and lack of access to basic social services, which raise the issue of equity in the distribution of resources and underpin the need for a long term development vision.
