The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) welcomes the generous US$9 million contribution of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands to promote safety and justice in Yemen.

The funding will help establish a new three-year project, Promoting Inclusive Access to Justice in Yemen (PIAJ), that aims to strengthen the resilience of institutions and communities, and to maintain a foundation for recovery and reconstruction. It will be Implemented in the four governorates of Aden, Hadramout, Hodeidah and Sana’a and has four key focus areas:  

  • Community safety and security: Addressing diverse community protection needs, including those of women and children.
  • More accessible justice: Extending services to vulnerable populations such as the poor, internally displaced, youth, and other marginalised groups.
  • Gender justice: Helping to build gender inclusive rule of law institutions with stronger women’s participation and leadership and that can deliver inclusive justice services to women and girls.
  • Detainee protection: Improving the basic conditions of detention including access to education and training as well as reintegration of detainees after release.

This agreement builds upon a previous partnership between UNDP and the Netherlands that supported safety and justice in Yemen, and reenforces the long-standing commitment of the Netherlands and UNDP to the rule of law in Yemen.
