Yemen - Tropical Storm, October 2008

The Yemen experience highlights the challenges that regional, national, and international recovery institutions face when dealing with a disaster event in a country with high levels of political, security, demographic, and socio-economic challenges. A key illustration of this would be the stalling of the post- 2008 recovery planning and funding effort as a fallout of instability and uncertain political transition that accompanied protests and unrest in Yemen and the broader Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region starting at the beginning of 2011.
