Yemen

Titre : ADDRESSING WASH SERVICES IN YEMEN : Improves vulnerable populations’ access to adequate water and sanitation systems.

Pays : Yemen

Durée : 2018-2021

Contexte : Yemen is suffering from the worst humanitarian crisis in the world, derived from over five years of active conflict. Fighting has caused significant damage to essential infrastructure, including water and sanitation systems and health facilities. Access to basic services has been drastically reduced against a backdrop of increasing rates of food insecurity, malnutrition, the reemergence of cholera, and near complete economic collapse. About 18 million people have limited or no access to safe drinking water, sanitation, or hygiene services. As of January 2020, cholera affected all but one of the 23 governorates in Yemen, with more than 1.2 million suspected cases since January 2018, including 1,543 deaths.

The project also builds the capacities of public and private service providers. At the household level, it promotes innovative water-saving methodologies, and in the agriculture sector, it supports sustainable water resources management. Under this project, water supply rehabilitation is expected to benefit 72,238 people ; sanitation service improvements are expected to benefit 49,780 people ; and hygiene promotion sessions are expected to reach 280,329 people.
