Our Focus


UNDP Yemen's work

UNDP acknowledges the desire by the Yemeni people to live lives that are peaceful, dignified, and not dependent on foreign assistance. As we implement our new Country Programme Framework, see how we respond to the most urgent humanitarian needs within the implementation of our projects. We have designed our work to broadly address the most pressing needs of Yemenis including restoring livelihoods, strengthening resilience to current and future challenges, and laying the foundation for long-term development.


Next generation UNDP

Today's development challenges are complex and each context is different. That's why we tailor our work to fit the needs of the countries and communities we serve.

UNDP's Strategic Plan (2018-2021) has been designed to be responsive to the wide diversity of the countries we serve. The diversity is reflected in three broad development contexts: eradicating poverty; structural transformations; and, building resilience.

Three development objectives

Eradicate poverty in all its forms and dimensions

Accelerate structural transformations

Build resilience to shocks and crises

To respond to these issues, and better focus its resources and expertise to deliver against the 2030 Agenda, UNDP has identified a set of approaches that we call "Signature Solutions".


Six UNDP "Signature Solutions"

Signature Solutions are integrated responses to development against which we align our resources and expertise to make real impact.


Keeping people out of POVERTY


GOVERNANCE for peaceful, just, and inclusive societies


Crisis prevention and increased RESILIENCE


ENVIRONMENT: Nature-based solutions for development

Clean, affordable ENERGY

Women's empowerment and GENDER equality


Each Signature Solution includes a mix of policy advice, technical assistance, finance, and programmes. All harness the potential to unlock the path to sustainable development, but no one solution will succeed on its own. We need all of them to achieve the SDGs.
