UNDP-EU partnership: stories from the field
Here you will find stories that illustrate the partnership between UNDP and the Europan Union in the field. Given that our partnership covers over 100 countries and spans over a decade, these stories represent just a fraction of what we do together. They are however important as they show what difference our partnership makes in the lives of people. They show how we help empower people and support the building of resilient nations.
- Bread is life. Without electricity, oil, wheat or people to operate bakeries, the people of Taiz have to stand in long lines for a handful of bread. Our colleagues in Yemen report that everyone, including themselves, is afraid to go out to find food. Even when people risk their lives to go out for food, there's not much left in shops that they can afford. As air and sea blockades continue, humanitarian agencies are unable to bring essential life saving supplies while our colleagues working inside Yemen are running out of supplies and the bare minimums to do their jobs (internet/phones to access info, food, water, etc.), and do not have enough fuel or safe passage to reach affected communities.
