Yemen Policy Notes

The Yemen Policy Notes are series of policy notes prepared by the World Bank in anticipation of a post-conflict transition in Yemen. These notes aimed to identify immediate priorities for stabilization, recovery and restoration of services and infrastructure in the aftermath of Yemen’s current conflict.

As such, these notes examined short-to-medium-term institutional challenges facing the restoration and improvement of service across sectors. They focused on the immediate post-conflict priorities and challenges facing Energy, Water, Telecommunication, Education, Health, and Transport sectors in restoring services while also contributing to higher-level objectives of addressing systemic inequities and reinforcing trust in the state.

The notes make practical suggestions to the government of Yemen and international development partners to provide immediate post-conflict support to ensure empowerment, accountability, and better governance in service delivery.
