Project Manager-Yemen Economic Tracking Initiative (YETI) ProjectRegion Middle East, ACAPS
The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) is an independent humanitarian organisation helping people forced to flee.
We protect displaced people and support them as they build a new future. We started our relief efforts after World War Two. Today, we work in both new and protracted crises across more than 30 countries. We specialise in six areas: food security, education, shelter, legal assistance, camp management, and water, sanitation and hygiene.
We stand up for people forced to flee. NRC is a determined advocate for displaced people. We promote and defend displaced people’s rights and dignity in local communities, with national governments and in the international arena. NRC’s Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre in Geneva is a global leader in monitoring, reporting on and advocating for people displaced within their own country.
We respond quickly to emergencies. Our expert deployment capacity, NORCAP, boasts around 1,000 experts from all over the world who can be deployed within 72 hours. Our experts help improve international and local ability to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from crises.
Around 6,000 men and women work for the Norwegian Refugee Council. Most of us are hired locally to work in the field, and a small number are based at our head office in Oslo. Many of our colleagues were once themselves fleeing their homes.
ACAPS Purpose and project background
ACAPS is dedicated to enabling humanitarians to better understand crises in order to be able to take better decisions. We work in collaboration across the humanitarian sector and beyond to provide an evolving platform of:
- Independent analysis to support evidence-based decision making for humanitarian operations.
- Deployment of experts to support assessments and analysis in crisis.
- Capacity development of humanitarian actors to carry out better needs assessments and analysis.
- Innovative approaches to collect more reliable and timely data and conduct rigorous analysis.
The Yemen Economic Tracking Initiative (YETI) Project is built on these initiatives, drawing in quantitative and qualitative economic data, tracking trends and risks in economic decision making at multiple levels (local, governorate, and country, regional) and mapping them against a searchable, interactive timeline. The platform will serve as a tool for economic decision making, design and development of economic policy (particularly at the Technical Advisory Group of the Quad) and as a baseline to measure and track the impact of key decisions on economic outcomes. The platform will also serve as a tool and resource for the wider economic research community on Yemen.
