Yemen and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) signed here on Wednesday the Support to the Implementation of Transitional Justice in Yemen (2012 – 2014) Project.
The total budget of this project is US$ 4.033 million, UNDP provided US$ 1 million and the Office of High Commissioner on Human Rights provided US$ 50,000. Many donors have shown strong interest to support this project.
It will assist Yemen and other strategic key national stakeholders in developing the transitional justice process, from design through implementation, focusing on civil society's role, victims' organizations and issues of communication and outreach.
The project will work closely with the Ministry of Legal Affairs, the Cabinet of Ministers, the Parliament and bodies yet to be established such as the Independent National Human Rights Institution. Additionally, it will involve national stakeholders such as political parties, none-governmental organizations (NGOs), civil society organizations (CSOs), women and youth groups, as well as families of victims and affected communities by 2011 incidents.
