Project Description
The development objective of the Emergency Crisis Response Project for Yemen is to provide short-term employment and access to selected basic services to the most vulnerable; and preserve implementation capacity of two service delivery programs. There are two components to the project, the first component being labor intensive works and community services. The overall objectives of the component are to: (a) provide income support to targeted communities through temporary employment opportunities, (b) increase the productive assets and means of livelihood of beneficiary households and communities and improve access to community and social services, and (c) preserve the implementation capacity of the SFD and PWP, as key national service delivery programs. This component includes three sub-components: cash-for-work and Youth-targeted community services; small community infrastructure; and SME revitalization and employment generation. Finally, the second component is the project management and monitoring. This component will support project management and monitoring and evaluation (M&E) to ensure that the project is successfully and efficiently implemented in conformity with the Project Appraisal Document and the Disbursement Agreement. The component will finance: (a) the UNDP’s general management support (indirect) costs; (b) direct project management and supervision costs required to support implementation of the project; (c) hiring of a third-party monitoring (TPM) agency; and (d) project evaluation
