We welcome you to the Yemen Sustainable Development Platform, which has been designed on a twin approach, on one hand to provide information in a transparent manner and on the other provide a working space for the Government of Yemen agencies and its partners in managing development agenda for results. The platform is meant to increase level of coordination among Government institutions and between Government of Yemen and its development partners. The platform is expected to support Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation efforts in aid effectiveness and aid management. On-line systems will be introduced such as Public Investment Program (PIP); Development Assistance Database (DAD); and DevInfo (for M&E) in order to improve aid effectiveness, management and reporting. These systems will be linked to Balance Scorecard, which will empower the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation to identify project cycle (i.e. planning, signing, implementation, M&E and reporting) impediments at its early stages and address them immediately. This platform will also facilitate intra Government agencies coordination and central Government coordination with its development partners.
