OUR FOCUS

Peace Support

Facility

Overview

With the signature of the Hodeida Agreement in December 2018, there is renewed momentum around the overall peace process in Yemen for the first time since the start of the conflict in 2015. While the progress is slow, and the context remains fragile, there is an important opportunity for the results of the political negotiations to be reinforced with confidence building measures through conflict-sensitive projects and programmes.

Implementation and partnership

Guided by the Office of the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General, the United Nations Mission to support the Hodeida agreement (UNMHA) and the Resident Coordinator’s Office, UNDP will implement projects designed to provide visible results in areas critical to the advancement of the overall peace agenda.

The proposed mechanism to fund the projects is the Peace Support Facility (PSF). The Peace Support Facility has been established to accelerate the implementation of the agreements, build public support for the peace process and incentivize parties to deepen their engagement in the peace process. Priorities for the PSF will be established by the UN Special Envoy, the parties to the conflict and the UN Resident Coordinator. Priority interventions for the PSF will be implemented by UNDP, under the overall guidance of a Steering Committee.
