The UN System in Yemen is not leaving

Sep 23, 2011

The UN system is not leaving Sanaa or Yemen. We have analyzed our current numbers and presence and what programs we can continue to implement in light of the insecurity. We are adjusting our numbers, but recognise the importance of the UN presence in Yemen as well as humanitarian needs and will maintain flexible staffing levels as the security situation allows, to continue program delivery to the maximum extent possible. The UN System in Yemen is committed to its mandate and to continue serving the people of Yemen.
