“Needs Assessment Survey through Community Focal Points and Key Information Experts” Within the Programme “Rapid City and Neighborhood Profiling Towards a Development Oriented Urban Recovery Process in Yemen.

In a partnership with UN-Habitat Ghadaq the implemented partner conducted and implemented The Programme “Rapid City and Neighborhood Profiling towards a Development Oriented Urban Recovery Process in Yemen” represents the start of UN-Habitat Programme in Yemen and the base for proper planning for recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction in key cities in accordance with the concept of “Building Back Better”. City Profiles aim to address the risks and raise the reality of the humanitarian crises, to mitigate impacts on the most vulnerable, including the displaced, and to enable affected people to determine the course of their futures. They represent an instrument for fostering recovery and contribute to stabilization by empowering urban communities, their leaders and members while in turn guiding investments and capacity building towards this objective. The project aims at conducting a needs assessment to understand better the current situation in Yemeni key cities. Due to the current conflicts, key cities in Yemen have faced certain damages and secondary and tertiary cities have become ports for “reverse” population movement transforming them into hosting areas for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). This influx is putting additional challenges on existing services and infrastructure that are already scarce. In the context of a protracted crisis in Yemen, key future issues that should be addressed relate to peace and stability. Therefore, UN-Habitat is developing City Profiles to address the risks and reality of the humanitarian crises, to mitigate impacts on the most vulnerable, including the displaced, and to enable affected people to determine the course of their futures.
