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.

Humanitarian assistance is critical in Yemen, but on its own will not prevent the collapse of key social and economic institutions, stem the tide of conflict, or build Yemen’s resilience to future shocks. For this reason, in 2017 USAID relaunched its development assistance program in Yemen to help put the country on a path to recovery and ultimately to end the need for foreign assistance. USAID works with international and local partners to address the underlying causes of instability. Our work focuses on improving the full spectrum of Yemeni systems and institutions, government, civil society, private sector, and communities, to help lay a foundation for durable peace and resilience.

USAID is strengthening the Central Bank of Yemen and the Ministry of Finance to stabilize and create a productive macroeconomic environment given the ongoing conflict. USAID provides financial and marketing advice to Yemeni small and medium enterprises, primarily in the fishery and agriculture sectors, that generate the value needed to create jobs, increase incomes, and support sustainable livelihoods.

In the small seaside village of Mayfa, in Yemen’s Hadramawt Governorate, the whir of a salt grinding machine serves as the backdrop for the regular motions of six women gathered along a simple assembly line. Sitting in pairs around three plastic tables, they fill, measure, and seal small plastic bags of refined sea salt destined to be featured in the spice aisles of the region’s grocery stores, providing livelihoods for hundreds of local families.
