The UK is supporting UNDP led efforts to urgently re-build the capacity of Yemen's national demining institutions and support mapping and clearance operations to reduce the physical and social-economic impact of mines and explosive remnants of war on people and communities. The UK is contributing £1.05 million for this work in 2016 through the Conflict Stability and Security Fund. This is part of the UK’s wider efforts to help address Yemen's urgent humanitarian needs and contribute to effective stabilisation.
