USAID’s development assistance to Yemen addresses the underlying causes of instability in the country by supporting flexible and innovative programs to lay a stronger foundation for durable peace.

USAID’s development assistance to Yemen helps end the need for emergency assistance, putting the country on a path to recovery, and creating a stronger foundation for durable peace.

Yemen is suffering the largest humanitarian crisis in the world, exacerbated by its ongoing civil war. The regional, multi-actor conflict has resulted in destruction of infrastructure, livelihoods and social services, as well as weakened the resilience of communities and governance systems.  USAID development assistance in Yemen bridges the relief-to-development continuum and strengthens Yemen’s resiliency through an integrated programming approach in targeted geographic regions that stabilize the economy, rebuild basic education and health systems, promote inclusion and reduce conflict, and improve water sector access and management, while addressing emergent needs like the COVID-19 pandemic.
