NRC is currently implementing 15 projects focusing on the above mentioned four competencies and has submitted a number of proposals to various donors for further funding. The current projects are funded by 7 donors namely NMFA, SIDA, NORAD, ECHO, EU, DFID, and ERF-OCHA.
Conflict and displacements have resulted in a dire need for the provision of temporary shelters for the displaced populations as well as rehabilitation of damaged shelters in the conflict areas. The aim of NRC programming in Yemen is, therefore, to improve the living conditions of IDPs and Returnees through the provision of appropriate shelter. This is achieved through the construction of temporary/transitional shelters, rehabilitation of damaged shelters and provision of Non Food Items (NFIs). The selection criteria for targeted beneficiaries, including host communities, is agreed upon and approved by UNHCR and the Shelter/NFI/CCCM Cluster, in coordination with the Yemen Government’s IDP Executive Unit and in consultation with the respective communities. As of June 30, 2014, NRC had assisted 29,081 individuals through the construction of transitional shelters and rehabilitation of destroyed houses in Haradh and Abyan. In addition to constructing appropriate shelters for the displaced populations, in future NRC will focus more on rehabilitation of damaged shelters/houses in order to meet the needs of an increasing number of returnees.
