The SIERY project supports the resilience of Yemen's local governance systems and helps enhance the recovery of conflict affected communities. A three-year initiative, at the local level, it aims to develop and increase the support for responsive and accountable governance led by authorities toward inclusive economies that are driven by smallholders and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).
SIERY's strategy focuses upon two components:
- Institutional resilience (IR): A focus on local service delivery needs of populations and the role that governance can play in rebuilding peace and stability.
- Economic resilience (ER): Enables economic recovery and aims to strengthen livelihoods and access to inclusive productive services by working with smallholders and SMEs through a value chain approach and networking with financial institutions to enable a better environment for economic recovery.
