UNDP Yemen’s programmes and projects are implemented directly and indirectly through our strong local implementing partners including, but not limited to: (a) community organizations; (b) public services and institutions; (c) the private sector; and, (d) civil society organizations. Aided by UNDP Yemen’s neutrality, a critical component of our mandate is to help build local partner capacity to continue to deliver critical social safety net projects, livelihoods support and delivery of life-saving key basic services both during and after the crisis.
With a focus at the community-level, and working with key implementing partners, UNDP in Yemen aims to restore livelihoods – as well as social cohesion and security – to create the necessary conditions for resilience and a post-conflict Yemen. Our current priorities are: (a) supporting a peaceful solution and transition; (b) economic recovery and livelihood; (c) restoring key basic services; and, (e) empowering vulnerable groups.
Assessing the Impact of War on Development in Yemen is motivated by a desire to better understand the impact of conflict in Yemen across multiple pathways of human development. We assess this by calibrating the International Futures (IFs) model to create four alternative scenarios. These scenarios reflect three potential pathways of conflict development (ending in 2019, 2022 and 2030), as well as a counterfactual world in which conflict did not escalate after 2014.
To close gender gaps in the workplace, UNDP supports public and private organizations to implement the Gender Equality Seal Programme. For participating organizations, Gender Equality Seal certification supports a more efficient and equitable workplace and contributes to the advancement of gender equality and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
UNDP Yemen was awarded the Silver Gender Seal in 2018-2020. In going forward an action plan will be implemented for the achievement of the Gold Gender Seal in 2021-2022.
