Project Summary

Yemen's crisis demonstrates how chronic developmental issues compound and exacerbate humanitarian needs, particularly in situations where institutions are too weak to respond effectively. The severe impact on sectors like agriculture and fisheries, which are responsible for the majority of Yemen's workforce, demonstrates that both humanitarian and developmental issues need to be handled simultaneously.    


The project's overall objective is to strengthen the resilience of the Yemeni community to cope with the effects of the current unrest and enable those whose livelihoods were severely disrupted to recover and rebuild their lives.

Expected Outcome: Enhance stability and peace-building while providing opportunities for livelihoods to vulnerable groups and providing socio-economic infrastructure. This is expected to result in strengthening the resilience of communities that will in turn contribute to reducing the conflict.

Output: Community livelihoods and productive assets are improved to strengthen resilience.


This is a new project. Accomplishments will follow.
