Thematic overview

Rethinking Yemen’s Economy is a two-year Track-II project, funded by the European Union and the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Launched in March 2017, the project aims to identify Yemen’s economic, humanitarian, social and development priorities in light of the ongoing conflict in Yemen and prepare for the post-conflict recovery period. The initiative is implemented through a partnership between DeepRoot Consulting, Sana’a Center for Strategic Studies and the Center for Applied Research in Partnership with the Orient (CARPO).

The Track-II initiative serves as a platform to reimagine the Yemeni economy through a series of research studies, economic forums, and public outreach activities to address the needs and rights of the Yemeni people during and after the conflict.

Yemeni development leaders from the private sector, academia, and economic experts determine key issues in the Development Champions Forum. The Research Hive identifies best practices and lessons learned of various international experiences and present empirical evidence on the specified issues. Based on the results, the researchers will draft white papers and produce regularly policy briefs. A strong network of different local stakeholders including the private sector, youth and CSOs will ensure an inclusive and build consensus approach and counter the “brain drain” that Yemen is witnessing.
