Yemen Integrated Urban Services Emergency Project YIUSEP (Phase II)
UNOPS has received repeated requests from urban communities and the YIUSEP local implementation partners for additional support, including priority interventions for WASH, municipal services and urban roads, sectors which represent a significant part of the urgent needs on the ground. These priority requests from local counterparts form the basis for this new project, which has been prepared based on the evidence from the 2020 Yemen DNA study, building on the very successful area-based approach adopted during YIUSEP’s implementation, and considering the key lessons learned such as the need for greater focus on capacity building of local partners to support long-term sustainability. Ultimately supporting the restoration of services in these priority sectors is expected to allow conflict-affected people to address their most basic needs and increase their agency, therefore providing increased development opportunities. Additionally, bolstering urban services will help ensure adequate medical care and reduce the risk of disease during the current emergency.
