Audit of USAID/Yemen’s Democracy and Governance Activities

Country: Yemen
Fiscal Year: 2009
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: No
Description:

Yemen is one of the least developed countries in the world, with 43 percent of the population living under the poverty level. Yemen lacks a skilled workforce and suffers from high illiteracy, high infant mortality, and chronic high unemployment. USAID’s assistance is key to fighting the war on terror and addressing development needs in Yemen. USAID works in five remote, underserved Yemeni Governorates vulnerable to extremists. USAID works closely with other donors and implementing partners to build and sustain a democratic, well-governed state that responds to the needs of the Yemeni people. USAID also assists the Republic of Yemen Government in its efforts to strengthen its governance capacity, including the institutional development of local councils to support the electoral process and to mitigate tribal conflicts in rural areas. Planned funding for democracy and governance activities is more than $16 million for FYs 2008 and 2009.

This audit will (1) determine whether USAID/Yemen’s democracy and governance activities achieved intended results and (2) assess the activities’ impact.
