Economic Recovery

and Development

Responding to crisis 

The Economic Resilience and Recovery programme is future-looking. Not only does UNDP respond to urgent needs of the most vulnerable Yemenis, it helps to restore income sources and equips communities to overcome future challenges while preparing them for eventual long-term development.

UNDP is implementing projects that create job opportunities and enable households to: purchase basic necessities like food and water; enable resumption of priority services like hospitals, markets and schools; provide skills to vulnerable groups so that they can be employed; and, assist micro-finance institutions to give financial support to their clients. Projects aim to improve the skills and abilities of local institutions and strengthen partnerships between private and public actors, for more efficient service delivery and increased confidence.


To date, partnerships with the World Bank, the European Union, USAID and local financial and service providers have enabled UNDP to address priority needs of affected people in almost all Yemeni governorates and in more than 90 percent of the country’s 333 districts. This partnership also enabled local key service delivery institutions to progressively resume and scale up their services.
