The ETC was activated in Yemen in April 2015 in response to the conflict crisis. Situation Reports are issued monthly.
In June, the ETC provided data connectivity services to 961 humanitarians and security communications services to a total of 2,564 responders across 17 sites in Yemen.
Jay Mahanand, WFP Chief Information Officer (CIO) and Chair of the ETC visited north Yemen from 11 to 15 June. During the oversight mission, ETC services delivered to humanitarian partners across Yemen were presented to the CIO. Read Jay’s blog post, ‘Technology brings change and hope to Yemen’ following his visit.
After two years of follow up and coordination, the ETC obtained the required equipment to install security communications equipment in the IOMhosted site in Marib to support the safety and security of responders there.
