Titre : Employment Intensive Investment Programme (EIIP) and Decent Employment for Women in Yemen

Pays : Yemen

Identifiant : Yémen

Date/Durée : Start date : August 1, 2021 // End date : February 28, 2023

Résumé partiel
Since the start of the conflict in Yemen in 2015, the country’s infrastructure has sustained severe damage and its economy has contracted by more than 40 per cent. This has led to an overall increase in poverty, estimated at between 71 to 78 per cent, with 24.3 million people in need of humanitarian assistance and protection. The COVID-19 outbreak has compounded this problem, forcing Yemenis – particularly women – to earn less, save less and live with fewer resources. This intervention aims to provide innovative social protection and decent work solutions targeting women and the most vulnerable groups in Yemen. In collaboration with other UN agencies providing cash-for-work assistance in Yemen, such as the World Food Programme (WFP) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the ILO is integrating Employment Intensive Investment Programme (EIIP) approaches into existing cash-for-work/ cash-for-assistance interventions in two governorates –in the North and the South of the country – with a view to creating decent short-term jobs for the most vulnerable beneficiaries, particularly women. The expected results of the intervention include the development of technical guidelines and surveys, and capacity-building of national institutions, community and private sector organizations. In addition, the intervention supports at least 30 women community contractors with start-up/growth capital, business skills development, management training, mentorship and customized business support.
