Final Site Maintenance Report 2020 – Al- Jawf Gov – Yemen
This report presents the final progress of site maintenance activities as of December 2020 at Al-Jawf Gov.
1. GENERAL INTRODUCTION
Following the outbreak of conflict in Yemen in March 2015, a major humanitarian crisis resulted in a massive displacement of Yemenis across the country, particularly in areas of active military action. The conflict has also severely affected host communities and strained already very limited resources and public services. The majority of the current displaced population in many governorates live with host communities (either in rented accommodation or with relatives). However, as the crisis continues and the absorption capacity and coping mechanisms of host families diminish, a significant number of IDPs have been forced to settle in schools, hotels, buildings government and other empty buildings, turning them into collective centers. Alternatively, some IDPs resort to settlement or displacement to spontaneous settlements; erecting tents or makeshift shelters often in land where they have no legal rights and with the intention of staying for an extended period. These informal settlements typically suffer from overcrowding, severe damage, suboptimal conditions, inefficient services and access constraints.
Under the project, provision of CCCM COVID 19 activities in 10 IDP camps and accommodation sites in 2 districts of Al-Jawf government, which includes 3,483 households (20,898 people), the sites in Al-Jawf district ‘Al Hazm (Al-Mehzam Al-Sharqi site 411 HHs – Al-Mehzam Al-Gharbi site 300 HHs – AL Jarr site 210 HHs – AL Saed site 200 HHs – Wadi Shajen site 444 HHs) and 10 sites in the district of Al-Maton (AL Baten site 369 HHs – Al-Qawasemah site 200 HHs – Al Saleel Al Ahmed site 351 HHs – Al-Sarhat site 800 HHs – Farsha site 198 HHs) which targets IDPs in IDP reception sites and people at risk of COVID -19.
