A UNDP-commissioned study recently found that ongoing conflict in Yemen has reversed human development by 21 years. Yet despite the dire situation, the United Nations and its partners are delivering essential humanitarian and development assistance.

This briefing will discuss UNDP’s work on the ground and how they are assisting vulnerable Yemenis meet their most urgent needs, while helping to restore jobs and livelihoods and preparing for long-term development.
