Yemen AID Community Livelihoods Project

IBTCI was selected by USAID to conduct a mid-term evaluation of the Community Livelihoods Project (CLP) to assess the project’s implementation, effectiveness, and progress in Yemen. IBTCI’s evaluation was used to inform USAID whether its programmatic and fiscal goals were achievable and if the initial project design adequately addressed USAID’s overarching strategy in Yemen to positively impact stabilization in conflict zones. The CLP was designed to help increase employment opportunities for Yemeni civilians, improve citizen access to quality public services, promote community participation and empowerment, and strengthen local governance capacity within Yemen. IBTCI’s evaluation entailed conducting assessments at the community, district, and national level to determine where direct intervention is needed in eight primary governorates: Shabwa, Marib, al-Jawf, Amran, Aden, Abyan, al-Dhale, and Lahj, as well as other urban and peri-urban areas, including Taiz, Ibb, Sana’a, and Hodeidah.
