Yemen Zero Exclusion

According to UNHCR in 2019, there are almost 2.4 million IDPs in Yemen, with 80% displaced for over a year. 25% of these are residing in public areas such as schools, unoccupied buildings, and sporadic sites and are very vulnerable due to a limited access to services, protection issues and threats of eviction. Al Dhale’e is one of the most significantly impacted areas, with massive numbers of IDP residents and regular evictions and displacements. This 12 month project builds on ACTED’s current CCCM programming and aims to improve living conditions in these IDP sites through capacity building, improved coordination for service delivery and strengthen the self-governing structures of site residents.
