Progress Summary 2016-2017

The three-year joint programme “Enhanced Rural Resilience in Yemen” (ERRY) will be implemented by FAO, ILO, UNDP and WFP in four governorates: Hajjah, Hodeidah, Lahj and Abyan.

The overall objective of the programme is to enhance the resilience1 and self-reliance of crisis-affected rural communities through support to livelihoods stabilisation and recovery, local governance and improved access to sustainable energy.

ERRY will achieve two outcomes:

Outcome 1: Communities are better able to manage local risks and shocks for increased economic self-reliance and enhanced social cohesion. Outcome 2: Institutions are responsive, accountable and effective to deliver services, build the social contract and meet community identified needs.
