and the Rule of Law

Responding to crisis

UNDP's Governance and the Rule of Law works to balance supply and demand - empowering individuals and communities to understand and claim their rights while helping institutions to realize those rights in an equitable, just, accountable, transparent, inclusive, and participatory manner.

UNDP projects include: (a) facilitating the safe movement of families away from frontlines; (b) improving community access to security and justice; (c) strengthening the ability of local providers to deliver public services; and, (d) helping restore economic stability and social networks.

Projects are implemented with a view to build public trust in the Yemeni justice system and security institutions, encourage wide and inclusive participation and promote local ownership.


In collaboration with the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen (SESGY) and UN partner agencies - including UNICEF, UN Women, the UNHCR and UNODC - UNDP works closely with local actors to implement project activities.
