The European Union and the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Yemen announced on Friday the launch of a new initiative to identify the economic and development priorities in Yemen. The initiative is implemented through a partnership between DeepRoot Consulting, CARPO, and the Sana’a Center for Strategic Studies (SCSS). It aims to engage Yemeni development leaders from the private sector, academia, and economic experts in identifying Yemen’s economic and development priorities in Yemen during and after the conflict.
This 2-year initiative, which was announced in Bonn, Germany, will provide a platform to reimagine the Yemeni economy through a series of research studies, economic forums, and public outreach activities to build a wide consensus on the economic and development priorities in Yemen. It will run from March 2017 through to February 2019.
