The ongoing conflict in Yemen has resulted in a catastrophic humanitarian emergency with an increasing toll of civilian deaths and casualties across the country. Over 80 percent of Yemen’s population is estimated to be in need of humanitarian assistance and more than 2.5 million Yemenis have become IDPs.
The continuing conflict has destroyed much of the institutional ability of key ministries, governorates and local authorities to deliver essential social services to citizens. Public service restoration is essential for a smooth transition to recovery, as a political agreement is being negotiated. Combining communities’ own efforts with whatever limited state institutional capacity remains are needed to both curtail further humanitarian deterioration and the political ramifications of total state collapse.
In this context, UNDP, in partnership with the World Bank, developed a project to step up current efforts of the international community to deliver critically needed livelihood support and service delivery to a population hit hard by the conflict. The Yemen Emergency Crisis Response Project (YECRP) contributes to improving the resilience of participating households and communities and helps host communities of IDPs to cope with the economic and social pressures on the already scarce resources. It contributes to local area economies by supporting local communities, private sector contractors, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), and improving the purchasing power of benefitting communities.
The YECRP is a large national project funded by World Bank and implemented UNDP with a duration of 5-year; and has been in operation since September 2016. Two Responsible Parties, Social Fund for Development (SFD) and the Public Works Project (PWP) have been identified to deliver the following outputs:
1) Short-term income-generation – through labour-intensive Cash-for-Work schemes and small-scale community infrastructure rehabilitation leading to increased income-generation and livelihoods including access to productive assets for households. The end result will be that Yemeni households benefit from short-term income and livelihoods opportunities irrespective of gender, age, and displacement status.
2) Recovery of SMEs – through improvement of access to finance and Micro-Finance Institution (MFI) operations leading to enhanced resilience and recovery of financial service providers and SMEs (including agriculture-based SMEs). The end result will be that financial service providers and SMEs are able to sustain and scale up their business operations creating additional employment.
3) Increasing community assets – through reconstruction and rehabilitation of community infrastructure leading to functional key socio-economic community infrastructure. The end result will be that the communities benefit from restored socio-economic community assets through extended basic service delivery.
In delivering these outputs, UNDP will be able to ensure that Yemeni households and communities are able to effectively cope with the impact of the crisis and to enhance resilience-building and early recovery efforts.
As such, the project contributes towards Outcome 6 of the UNDP corporate Strategic Plan: Early recovery and rapid return to sustainable development pathways are achieved in post-conflict situations.
UNDP Yemen now seeks to hire an Information Management Officer to support accurate and timely information flows, improved data sources, effective data collection and analysis; and better reporting and communication for the YECRP based in the UNDP Country Office in Sana’a.
