USAID’s development assistance is working with communities to peacefully resolve conflicts and reinforce social cohesion.

The multi-layered, multi-actor conflict in Yemen poses enormous challenges to a negotiated resolution. The resulting destruction of infrastructure, livelihoods and social services has weakened the resilience of Yemen’s communities and governance systems. While only parts of Yemen have been on the war’s frontlines, every governorate has felt its effects. Solving the security, economic, political, and social issues facing Yemen will require strengthening community level capacities to identify and address grievances, reinforce social cohesion, and promote the peaceful resolution of differences.
