Titre : Enhancing rural resilience in Yemen (ERRY)

Pays : Yemen

Date : 2019 - 2022

Agence : Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency
Implementing organisation : United Nations Development Programme

The main objective of the ERRY II is to improve food and nutrition security, reduce vulnerability and strengthen resilience capacity of crisis-affected communities in Yemen through creation of sustainable livelihood and access to basic services. There are several sub objectives in order to reach this overall goal : i) increase local actors capacity to deliver services to the community, ii) develop livelihood activities in agriculture, cash-for-work, iii) rehabilitate roads and water systems and agricutural land, iv) introduce renewable energy, solar panels for households, water pumps and local manufacturing. These activities will reduce the risks for people to fall back into a humanitarian situation but also to build resources in the community, resouces that have been depleted during many years of conflict and food insecturity.

Conflict sensitivity is built into the programme and it also includes a component to promote social cohesion and capacity to peacefully resolve local conflicts.

The contribution is a resilience support financed by a humanitarian allocation. The programme is a three years intervention, a humanitarian complement to an on-going EU DEVCO programme ”Enhancing resilience in Yemen in Food Security and resilient Livelihood programme”, second phase 2019-2022 (ERRY II).

Under output 1, UNDP has been able to to train 1 300 female farmers on skills development in livestock. In addition, 700 female farmers were trained to improve livestock feeding and almost 3 000 beneficiaries have received cash for work support to restore 11 community market assets. Under output 2 the programme has been able to deliver support to 81 public institutions (health, education and district office) in terms of delivering solar off-grid systems. 36 solar off-grid vaccine refrigerators have been installed in 36 health centers. For instance, the programme was awarded the Ashden award for providing energy efficiency solutions in a humanitarian setting by supporting micro-grid projects. Under output 3, a total of 136 (close to being balanced between women and men) mediators were recruited and trained to contribute to peaceful conflict resolution in selected provinces. Furthermore, 46 sub-district committees were developed and in conjunction with this 46 community resilience plans established (with conflict and gender integrated prespectives). As the Covid-19 pandemic evolved during last year the programme had to refocus some of the activities. 120 women has been trained on developing PPE:s (personal protective equipment), 5 000 households has been receiving Covid-19 handwashing kits, and hygienic materials has been distributed to 1 000 hand washing stations in selected provinces. For in-depth assessment of activites implemented during 2019, see statement on narrative report in Trac.
