UNDP in Yemen

Leaving no one behind

Our objective

UNDP acknowledges the desire by the Yemeni people to live lives that are peaceful, dignified, and not dependent on foreign assistance. In addition to responding to the most urgent humanitarian needs, UNDP projects are designed to restore livelihoods, strengthen resilience to future challenges, and lay the foundation for long-term development.

Our impact

With a focus at the community-level, and working with key implementing partners, UNDP in Yemen aims to restore livelihoods – as well as social cohesion and security – to create the necessary conditions for resilience and a post-conflict Yemen. Our current priorities are: (a) supporting a peaceful solution and transition; (b) economic recovery and livelihood; (c) restoring key basic services; and, (d) empowering vulnerable groups.
