The Supporting Resilient Livelihoods and Food Security in Yemen Joint Programme (ERRY II), a 3 years programme financed by the EU, will be implemented in Yemen by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), International Labour Organization (ILO), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and World Food Programme (WFP) in six vulnerable governorates: Hajjah, Hodeidah, Lahj, Abyan, Taiz and Sana’a.

The overall objective of the Programme is to contribute to reduced vulnerability and strengthened resilience of crisis-affected communities in Yemen through the creation of sustainable livelihoods and improving access to basic services.

Specific Objective (Outcome): Crisis affected communities are better able to manage local risks and shocks for increased resilience and self-reliance.

The Joint Programme is expected to achieve the following results over the implementation timeframe:

  • Output 1: Community livelihoods, productive assets and food security are improved to strengthen resilience and self-reliance;
  • Output 2: Vulnerable communities benefit from solar energy for sustainable livelihoods opportunities and enhanced social service delivery;
  • Output 3: Communities and local authorities have enhanced capacities to respond to conflict- and gender-sensitive needs.
  • Interventions will target the most vulnerable community groups, including women, the unemployed, youth, the Muhamasheen, internally displaced persons (IDPs) and stressed host communities. Target groups are selected using inclusive, participatory and conflict-sensitive tools that will also be used to mobilise and involve them in the proposed activities. Active partnerships with local authorities, the private sector, communities, the Social Fund for Development (SFD) and NGOs will be sought to successfully implement the Programme.
  • The ERRY II Joint Programme will apply a coordinated resilience-based approach to reducing vulnerabilities and contributing to improved levels of community stability, reslience and self-reliance in target areas, improved local governance and reduced competition over scarce resources through the expansion of renewable solar energy. It will also follow the livelihoods and resilience frameworks to address venerability issues through joint programming and strategic partnerships between humanitarian and development partners.
  • The Programme uses an integrated and bottom-up planning and implementation approach to strengthening resilience in affected communities. The Programme will support local-level engagement of community institutions to identify community priorities and implement locally-owned recovery efforts that target local conflict drivers. Inclusive community resilience planning processes and implementation of community-prioritized micro projects by community members will be strengthened and institutionalized to enhance community capacity to plan and implement preparedness projects for resilience building. The Programme interventions will use community resilience plans as entry points to provide support to the selected communities.
  • Programme activities will also work to include women at all stages of implementation, with a focus on women economic empowerment. The Programme will actively seek to address the specific needs and opportunities for women. Women will also be part of village cooperative councils (VCCs) and insider mediator (IM) groups.
