Emergency Resilience Grants Project

Emergency Resilience Grants Project

(April 2017 - December 2018)

The Emergency Crisis Response Project ECRP-USAID aimed to mitigate the impact of the current crisis on affected Yemenis in rural & urban settings through a value chain development approach; focusing on vital value chains and sectors. The project’s aim was to assist MSMEs and institutions to gradually resume and scale-up service delivery. The activities of the project brought new ideas on supporting micro producers in restoring their livelihoods, supporting them to access basic services, increase employment and livelihoods opportunities, address food insecurity and reviving local agricultural, fish and health sector. The project also piloted sustainable approaches on community contribution and shared use of solar technology in water pumping for small holder farmers in rural and hard to access areas to reduce fuel and diesel use and production costs. In addition, the health component was designed to strengthen the capacities of health facilities, both SMEs and lead firms, to sustain service & product demand, withstand and continue generating jobs and provide high quality health services to the local communities, specifically mothers and newborns.
