Resources to strengthen inclusive local governance and stabilisation in Yemen

Welcome to the local governance in Yemen resource hub. This hub contains resources on local governance across all Yemeni governorates

The resource hub is an initiative of the Berghof Foundation and PDF Yemen to collect and make available the scattered resources on local governance across all Yemeni governorates in one place. It provides granular information on a governorate by governorate level as well as offering options to search and browse a large collection of publications on de-facto developments and the legal framework of local governance in Yemen.

Strengthening inclusive and effective local governance in Yemen needs to be a joint endeavour between Yemeni stakeholders and international supporters and we hope that this resource hub can help inform new initiatives, better policy, and more effective programming. More
