In response to the ongoing crisis in Yemen, UNOPS provides project management and human resource services as well as implementation support for a wide range of projects on behalf of partners.
With support from the World Bank, UNOPS is implementing two emergency projects: an integrated multi-sector project to restore and improve access to public social services in urban areas, including water and sanitation, solid waste management and electricity; and a solar energy project to provide improved access to electricity in rural and peri-urban areas of Yemen.
UNOPS is further implementing initiatives under the UN Humanitarian Response Plan aiming to enhance the capacity of communities to manage solid waste through the procurement of essential equipment and training.
In addition, UNOPS is providing operational support to a number of UN partners in Yemen, with a focus on human resources and logistics.
