OVERVIEW OF THE CRISIS
Entering the third year of humanitarian crisis, conflict, severe economic decline, and collapsing essential public services have taken an enormous toll on the Yemeni population, exacerbating existing vulnerabilities.
EMERGENCY EMPLOYMENT AND COMMUNITY REHABILITATION CLUSTER
2018 Response Plan And Changes Since Last Year
EECR cluster partners will target overall 1.25 million people across 22 Governorates. This target includes populations at risk of injury and death from landmines, UXOs and AXOs, crisis-affected economically vulnerable population, including those living in 107 FSAC and Nutrition priority districts, socio-economically empowered IDPs, sustainably reintegrated returnees.
Mine Action partners are planning to release around 10,000,000 sq. m of land through survey and clearance operations and dispose around 400,000 mines and unexploded and abandoned explosive ordnances across 19 Governorates. Cluster partners also plan to reach around 1,240,000 people (177,143 households) through non-agricultural livelihoods, including emergency and postcash for work employment opportunities, particularly in the informal sector, which employs the majority of Yemenis. Partners also target 14,000 IDPs (2,000 households) in collective centers and private setting with socio-economic empowerment initiatives to increase their self-reliance and pave the ground for longer term recovery and reintegration. They also plan to support around 10,000 returnees in sustaining their return and achieving durable solutions. Cluster partners will also support local authorities in preserving basic service delivery from collapsing and support national actors’ capacities to shape and enhance their resilience.
