Governments cannot function without sustainable sources of funding to pay public employees, provide essential public services, and foster a functional and prosperous society. For decades, Yemen has depended largely on energy exports to fill state coffers, and the country has had one of the lowest tax collection rates in the world. The results have led to major spending deficits, which the government has filled by borrowing from the Central Bank, tapping into its reserves, and relying on foreign loans and aid. Today, with support from USAID’s Economic Recovery and Livelihoods Program (ERLP), Yemen is trying to diversify its revenue base and stabilize its public finances to create a healthier social and economic environment.
