Climate & environment assessment: Support to political transition in Yemen

Abstract

Evidence on Demand was requested by DFID to carry out a climate and environmental appraisal as part of the Business Case for Support to Political Transition in Yemen. This programme aims to contribute to a stable and secure Yemen through seeing that Yemen's democratic transition is successfully implemented in a peaceful and inclusive manner. The consultant developed and completed the draft climate and environmental assessment by identifying high-level climate and environmental impacts/opportunities. In doing so, it was recognised that security, health and economic issues are likely to be the highest priorities right now for Yemen but the dependence of the economy on natural resources means that environmental and rural development issues should also be prioritised.
