FY23 was an important year for GPRBA, underscored by two significant achievements. First, a $6.6 million GPRBA grant package was approved for the Yemen Integrated Urban Services Emergency Project II (YIUSEP II). Second, GPRBA held the RBF Forum in May 2023 in Nairobi, Kenya, the first in person GPRBA learning event since May 2019.
Yemen has been entrenched in a protracted conflict that has lasted for over eight years. The ongoing conflict, compounded by climate-related hazards, a cholera epidemic, and the global COVID-19 pandemic, has propelled Yemen into one of the most severe humanitarian crises in the world.
Technical Assistance (TA) enables GPRBA to lay the foundations for future project design, build capacity among partners and governments, and test the applicability of OBA/RBF in new sectors and environments.
