UNDP in Yemen

European Union

The European Union (EU) and UNDP joined efforts through Strengthening Institutional and Economic Resilience in Yemen (SIERY) to buttress the resilience of local governance systems in Yemen to reinforce the resilience and recovery of conflict-affected communities.

In addition, as part of Enhanced Rural Resilience Joint Programme in Yemen (ERRY) - also supported by the EU - adopts a coordinated resilience approach to reduce vulnerabilities and contribute to improved levels of community stability in targeted areas. The local governance and social cohesion interventions reduce the risk of lack of access to basic services, mitigate communal conflicts and promote solidarity through community and institution mobilization. Through the introduction of solar renewable energy, service delivery and income generation are focused to support the rural and affected communities to improve access to energy.  It also promotes the 3x6 approach for livelihoods improvement.
