The Yemeni fisheries sector has suffered greatly from the volatile and deteriorating situation in the country. This has left many coastal communities without livelihoods and increased their vulnerability to negative economic developments and the fallouts of war. Within the framework of the EU-funded livelihoods recovery project, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) supports these conflict-affected coastal communities by creating job opportunities and protecting the livelihoods of many families. The project also contributes to the preservation of this traditionally important sector of the Yemeni economy.
