Background/Justification:

Water and sanitation are among the most serious challenges confronting Yemen’s current crisis and its development. Yemen’s water resources are rapidly being depleted and only a small proportion of ground water is self-sustaining.  Given the severe and chronic water scarcity challenges in the country, and the fact that domestic water usage constitutes a small and declining share of total usage, access to safe water in Yemen has been consistently low and is at risk of deteriorating further.
The recent humanitarian crisis in Yemen has further aggravated the already deleted situation of the WASH services across the country. In the recent years and more specifically during 2017, Yemen has reported many AWD/suspected cholera cases and witnessed one of the largest outbreaks globally with over 1 million reported cases. Among many other factors, the limited and non-functionality of WASH services, are considered as one of the main cause of such disease outbreaks. Similarly, lack of access to safe drinking water and sanitation systems are the leading causes of child mortality and morbidity, they also contribute to the malnutrition and stunting in Yemen. As per the Humanitarian Need Overview 2018 16.0 million out of 27.4 million are in needs to assistance in Water Sanitation and Hygiene.
Against above mentioned background, CLIENT has revised the programme approach for (2018-19) with an increased investment in WASH programme across Yemen. The planned interventions have enormous investments supported by the international community/donors aligned to YHRP-2018 for preventing Yemen for disease outbreaks through scaling-up the rehabilitation of non-functional WASH facilities.
