The 24-month Emergency Crisis Response Project (ECRP) aims to mitigate the impact of the current crisis on local households and communities and assist their recovery from the bottom-up using local systems, capacities and institutions to progressively resume and scale-up service delivery. The project will achieve specific results in: 1) Increasing sustainable employment and livelihoods opportunities, including health and education; 2) Reviving the agricultural sector through support to key value chains. As such, the project contributes to the livelihoods restoration and service delivery restoration components of UNDP’s Yemen Resilience Programme. The Project’s Theory of Change assumes that if income-generation and livelihoods opportunities are increased for youth and women (including IDPs), Yemeni households and communities will be able to better cope with the impact of the current crisis and be strong drivers of the resilience-building and recovery efforts.
