Yemen - Emergency Crisis Response Project : second additional financing and restructuring (English)

The development objective of Yemen Emergency Crisis Response Project (ECRP) is to (i) provide short-term employment and access to selected basic services to the most vulnerable; (ii) preserve existing implementation capacity of two service delivery programs; and (iii) provide emergency cash transfers to the poor and vulnerable in response to the food crisis. This fist level of restructuring requires second additional financing (AF2) of two hundred million US dollars to respond to the food crisis in Yemen. The AF2 will reach the most vulnerable Yemenis, most of whom cannot participate in labor and cannot therefore benefit from the cash for work program supported by the original ECRP (e.g. elderly, disabled, female-headed households, etc.). The AF2 will hence provide direct cash assistance to purchase food and will scale up the impact of the project and target an additional 1.5 million among the chronic poor and most vulnerable households, with targeted cash transfers.
