The UNESCO Regional Office for GCC and Yemen is engaged in a range of projects and activities in the field of education, culture, communication and sciences. 

In December 2019, UNESCO received a fund from the United Nations Peacebuilding for a project titled “Empowering Yemeni youth towards peace: ensuring access to information and participation” managed by the Communication and Information Unit. Through an inclusive and participatory approach, this 18-months project aims to empower the youth with the skills, knowledge and tools to create information, content and dialogue in support of the peace-building process. The interventions the project aim to reconnect youth in Yemen with the peace-building process, by raising their voices, fostering the free flow of information and having two-way communication. 

This will be done by improving access to information for youth on the peacebuilding process so they can increase their knowledge and make informed decisions. In parallel, the project wants to also provide young Yemenis with safe spaces of dialogue, including social media, online surveys, youth debates and radio programmes to voice their needs and opinions with decision-makers and duty bearers. 

The Local Project Manager will be responsible to implement the project and will undertake management and coordination tasks to ensure the project’s activities are successfully being implemented as per the established work plan.
