With the support of the European Union, IOM rehabilitated 32 public facilities including schools, health facilities, irrigation and water and sanitation infrastructure across the country.

In Marib and Lahj – two governorates hosting hundreds of thousands of people fleeing the conflict – 650,000 people have access to improved health care, education, water and sanitation services.

The restoration work of the Ma’rib Dam gates and irrigation canals provided farmers with much-needed water to revive agricultural work.

“The restoration of public services – damaged by the crisis – represents a new lifeline for communities who have lost access to vital services,” said Christa Rottsteiner, IOM Chief of Mission in Yemen.

“Now children are able to go back to school, families can send loved ones for treatment, community members can access new job opportunities, and farmers can better irrigate their crops,” she added.

The EU-supported project also contributed to building peace and strengthening social cohesion through the establishment of six Community Conflict Resolution Committees, which handle and resolve conflicts over scarce resources.

Christa added: “These interventions have had a sustainable impact on communities by strengthening the resilience of communities and empowering women.”

IOM works directly with communities during the various phases of project implementation. This ensures that their needs are met and creates space for mutual dialogue.

The International Organization for Migration has also provided training and equipment to authorities in more than 25 government offices, to enhance their capacities and ensure greater accountability to Yemeni communities.
