Yemen Humanitarian Action
May 2021
October 2022

Through this 18-month project, the Yemen Displacement Response Consortium will support 126,002 individuals across 28 districts in 9 governorates to improve the protection environment and living conditions in IDP sites in Yemen.

This project will continue the coordinated, joint-response of the consortium (comprising DRC, ACTED, NRC and IOM) in four main sectors:

- SMC: The Consortium will ensure target sites operate under functional coordination and management mechanisms at site and area level, site governance are established and/or strengthened, gaps are identified, and referral mechanisms utilized.

- Shelter: continue provision and maintenance of shelters.
Partners will use emergency shelters (0-3 months) and transitional shelters/upgrade kits (+3 months) due to complex land ownership issues in Yemen.

- WASH: continue to ensure adequate access to water through the construction of water infrastructure, latrines, and waste management systems as well as conduct hygiene promotion campaigns.

- Protection: continue to ensure the protection of IDP communities in terms of Housing Land and Property (HLP); inter-community conflict; Information Counselling and Legal Assistance (ICLA), Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA), case management, Explosive Ordnance Risk Education (EORE), as well as advocacy.
