BACKGROUND

The Cash Consortium of Yemen (CCY), established in June 2020, aims to provide a cohesive and harmonized approach to meet the needs of the most vulnerable conflict-affected households in Yemen through a Multi-Purpose Cash Assistance (MPCA) response, ensuring comprehensive sequencing of aid and transitioning to longer-term and social safety net (SSN) programmes. Currently, the CCY is a collaboration amongst six organizations – Danish Refugee Council (DRC), International Migration Organization (IOM), Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), ACTED, Mercy Corps (MC) and Solidarites International (SI). DRC has been working in Yemen since 2008 and has programmatic presence in nine governorates and 40 districts. DRC implements multi-sectoral programming including Economic Recovery, WASH, Shelter/NFIs, Humanitarian Disarmament & Peacebuilding (HDP), water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), Protection and CCCM. Operating from a Country Office in Sana’a, three Area Offices in Sa’ada, Hajjah and Aden, Base Offices in Al Hudaydah and Mokha and five satellite offices in Az Zuhrah, Abs, Dhamar, Bait al Faqih, and Al Khowkha. DRC works through a ‘one program approach’ and the integration of different sectoral interventions with the aim of maximizing the impact of the program. DRC’s global vision for Economic Recovery programming is that “all conflict and displacement-affected households in its countries of operation are able to become more self-reliant and resilient to shocks as part of achieving a durable solution”. DRC Economic Recovery teams in Yemen contribute to fulfilling that vision by undertaking food security, financial inclusion, and livelihoods interventions according to DRC’s three program platforms – Emergency, Durable Solutions and Root Causes. DRC is at the forefront of the emergency response programming, with a significant portfolio in cash via its leadership of the CCY, in-kind food assistance through its partnership with WFP and UNFPA, and market-based interventions (including emergency livelihoods programs). DRC implements food security, livelihoods, and resilience-building activities to provide immediate access to food through cash for work, unconditional cash grants, and the distribution of agricultural tools, agriculture inputs, and business grants, and vocational training.
