  • Yemen Stabilisation Programme launches its first phase of the Project “Restoration of livelihoods of affected populations” Aug 27, 2017

    Aden, 23 August 2017: Aden is a test case for the concretization of post-conflict peace dividend and for the start of a post-conflict recovery phase. Yet the city’s socioeconomic, political and security conditions remain fragile and the State is struggling to improve security orders. Aden and other non-active conflict areas require additional support to help prevent negative setbacks that would adversely delay peace process and reconstruction, as well as put citizens at risk of relapse in secondary conflicts. Livelihoods and essential basic social services have not been recovered to the pre-conflict levels, fuelling a terrain for extreme poverty, violence, further displacement and instability in general. The Yemen Stabilisation Programme (YSP) focuses on two-interrelated objectives: 1) Generate knowledge on local stabilisation needs; and 2) Restore the disrupted livelihoods of the affected population that would yield to the strengthening of community-based protection mechanisms mainly focusing on women and youth. Moreover, the programme is expected to expand to other areas, which would entirely depend on mobilization of resources.
