The National Dialogue Support Programme in Yemen 2014-16. A Project Report.
The National Dialogue Support Programme (run by Berghof Foundation in cooperation with the Political Development Forum Yemen) has been providing support to Yemeni stakeholders and mandated structures during the preparation and implementation of the National Dialogue Conference (NDC) since early 2012. We continued to support the Yemeni peace and transition process between February 2014 and December 2016. The aim of the project was to strengthen and protect the political transition process by supporting locally-owned and inclusive structures and mechanisms for political dialogue, informed decision-making and trust- and consensus-building. While our overall aim remained to support the Yemeni peace and transition process, we repeatedly had to respond to the political dynamics in Yemen which changed dramatically and at times very quickly between February 2014 and December 2016.
