Yemen Integrated Urban Services Emergency Project YIUSEP

In March 2018, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) contributed USD 930 million to the United Nations for the support and funding of the United Nations Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan 2018 (“YHRP”). As part of the WASH Cluster allocation, UNOPS has been implementing the WASH Emergency Responses Project, whose objectives are to increase access to clean water for the most affected people in local communities and to support and increase the existing solid waste collection and disposal capacity of local cleaning funds in selected cities. These objectives are in line with the WASH cluster strategic objectives in Yemen for 2018 by implementing two emergency responses in areas with high number of IDPs, vulnerable groups and other affected people. The project includes supporting local service providers and local communities in:

  1. Increasing access to clean water for the most affected people (especially IDPs and vulnerable groups) through the provision of solar-powered water pumps systems and water storage tanks; and
  2. Increasing the capacity of local cleaning funds through provision of solid waste collection and disposal equipment and the provisions of civil works for its damaged maintenance workshops and management buildings.
