The United Nations (UN) organized a workshop for consultations on swift humanitarian response for the year 2024 through its Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Mokha City.
The workshop was attended by 71 representatives from ministerial offices, local authorities in Taiz and Al Hodeidah, executive offices, as well as officials from local and international organizations operating in Yemen.
The workshop aimed to enhance responsibility, understand humanitarian needs in the governorates of Taiz and Al Hodeidah, involve local authorities in their planning, identify local priorities, and engage international organizations, particularly the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), in discussing relevant response methods.
The workshop focused on sustainable relief plans, citizen priorities and needs, and the transition of humanitarian projects from relief to sustainable development projects.
Mariam Aldughani, Head of the Relief and International Cooperation Technical Team at the Office of the Presidency, said, “In the coming years, there will be sustainable service and development projects, and there will be a shift from relief humanitarian work to sustainable humanitarian work.”
These consultations were attended by UN partners working in non-governmental organizations, coordinating ministries, relevant parties, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the International Red Cross Committee, United Nations Project Services Office staff, Médecins Sans Frontières in the region, UNICEF, the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Population Fund, and others.
