Multi-dimensional Livelihoods Assessment in Conflict Affected Areas

What is the project about

Multi-dimensional Livelihoods Assessment in Conflict Affected Areas

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 assessment will also enable the Government of Yemen, UNDP and other UN agencies, as well as other development partners in the country to establish baselines and a monitoring and evaluation system to track livelihoods trends including the impact of livelihood programmes in Yemen.  The assessment results are also important for evidence based development of Government’s priority actions in support of crisis affected Yemenis who yearn for quick peace dividends to sustain the peace in the country. 

The assessment results for the livelihoods, governance and conflict assessments will be compared and analyzed together to identify areas of complementarily in programming process.
