Project Summary

The Building Resilient Livelihoods and Improving Protections Services for Conflict Affected Communities in Aden and Lahj (BRISCC) project aims to reduce the socio-economic vulnerabilities of conflict and COVID-19-affected communities related to lack of income opportunities and lack of access to financial services for business financing.

The project will address vulnerabilities through institutional capacity-building and local economic revitalisation by providing self-learning opportunities that build entrepreneurial and technical skills and resilience against reoccurring challenges. The project will also adapt a “human security” approach that aims to help community members establish a sense of safety and stability by strengthening institutional mechanisms to enable access protection services and referral pathways.

BRISCC will directly target 1,000 Yemenis in Aden and Lahj Governorates, 50 per cent of whom will be women.

Objectives

The overriding project objective is to reduce the socio-economic vulnerabilities of target communities and strengthen the resilience of crises-affected communities in Yemen. This objective will be achieved through the development of sustainable livelihoods whilst improving community access to inclusive and safe protection services.

Expected Results 

  • Inclusive and safe protection services become more accessible for Yemenis.
  • 1,000 individuals will receive business training and the same 1,000 Yemenis will also receive grants of US$ 800 to create microbusiness.
