Supporting Resilient Livelihoods, Food Security and Climate Adaptation in Yemen, Joint Programme (ERRY III)

Project Summary

Supporting Resilient Livelihoods, Food Security, and Climate Adaptation in Yemen, Joint Programme (ERRY III) is a 3-year programme co-funded by the European Union (EU) and Government of Sweden. The programme will build upon the progress and lessons learned from the previous phases of building community resilience. It will contribute to reducing vulnerabilities and improving levels of community resilience and self-reliance in targeted areas and local governance.

This programme, managed by UNDP, is implemented jointly by FAO, ILO, UNDP, and WFP in seven governorates in Yemen. It aims to address three components: (1) Community conflict reduction and social cohesion; (2) Access to clean energy and climate adaptation; and (3) Livelihoods and food security. It will directly benefit vulnerable beneficiaries and marginalized communities including Internally Displaced People (IDPs), returnees, vulnerable host communities, Muhamasheen, female-headed households, youth, daily labourers, people with disabilities, and elderly community members.

Gender Empowerment

ERRY III JP activities will contribute to gender equality, women’s empowerment, and gender transformative change. It will also contribute to inclusion of women at all stages of implementation, assessment, and monitoring and evaluation – considering the social and cultural barriers rural women face in Yemen. The JP will not only actively seek to address the specific needs and opportunities for women, but care will be taken to ensure that activities provided for women are culturally acceptable and can be accessed by women through thematic areas:

  • Promoting economic and social rights and empowering girls and women.
  • Increasing access for women to financial services and products, and productive resources.
  • Improving access to entrepreneurship opportunities, including social entrepreneurship, and alternative livelihoods and strengthened participation in the green and circular economy.
  • Addressing the challenges and harnessing the opportunities offered by the green transition and the digital transformation.
  • Increasing women’s participation in – and have improved access to – jobs, entrepreneurship opportunities in the green economy, and the circular economy.
