Through the Peace Support Project, UNOPS provides operational support to UN-led efforts to achieve a political settlement, under the auspices of the Office of the Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Yemen.

The UN Verification and Inspection Mechanism, managed and operated by UNOPS, helps facilitate the unhindered flow of commercial goods to Yemen by overseeing the monitoring and inspection services of commercial and bilateral assistance cargo destined for Yemeni Red Sea ports.

Under a new agreement, funding from the government of Japan will be used to enhance the operational support of both initiatives and support the enabling environment of UN-led peace efforts and humanitarian response in Yemen.

“The government of Japan is pleased to support the PSP and UNVIM,” said Kazuhiro Higashi, Chargé d’Affaires of the Embassy of Japan in Yemen. “Through this support, we hope to contribute to improving the humanitarian situation in Yemen and promoting Yemeni-Yemeni dialogue.”

“UNOPS is pleased to work with all partners to support the UN-led peace process and humanitarian response to help the people of Yemen build a better future,” said Muhammad Usman Akram, Representative and Director of UNOPS Multi-Country Office in Amman.
