Why USAID/OTI is in Yemen

Yemen ranks among the highest importance to U.S. foreign policy priorities and objectives on multiple fronts, including national security, counter-terrorism and development. The United States has committed its support to Yemen’s political transition and economic and security sector reforms as a way to further stability in Yemen and the region. This political transition process is the opportunity the USAID/OTI’s Yemen program is designed to address.  USAID/OTI began programming in March 2010 as part of a wider U.S. Government effort to assist the Yemeni government to address destabilizing factors in its most insecure governorates. The program supports government and civil society actors’ efforts to engage in an inclusive and peaceful political transition through targeted assistance in Yemen’s most challenging and strategically important communities.
