Design a Factsheet for UNDP Yemen Gender Interventions
Mission and objectives
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has worked directly with the government and people of Yemen for more than 50 years. In spite of these efforts, however, the conflict initiated in 2015 has resulted in an unprecedented humanitarian crisis. Nearly 80 per cent of Yemenis are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection, 10 million people are on the brink of famine, and over 3 million are currently displaced and unable to return to their homes. Yemen now ranks 178th on the Human Development Index – in comparison to 153rd prior to 2015. UNDP acknowledges the desire by the Yemeni people to live lives that are peaceful, dignified, and not dependent on foreign assistance. In addition to responding to the most urgent humanitarian needs, UNDP projects are designed to restore livelihoods, strengthen resilience to future challenges, and lay the foundation for long-term development.
UNDP Yemen quarterly publishes a one-page factsheet highlighting the Country Office’s interventions in the gender sector: Gender Factsheet: Quarter 1 2021 and Gender Factsheet: Quarter 2 2021 (can be found on: https://www.undp.org/yemen). Similarly, the assigned Online UNV will be responsible for creating the Gender Factsheet: Quarter 3 2021.
