"The Emergency Crisis Response Project provides a model for how to operate and deliver services at the nexus between humanitarian and development needs."

Despite the conflict raging throughout Yemen, the Emergency Crisis Response Project (ECRP) delivers services and cash to the poor and vulnerable nationwide. Lessons learnt from this innovative and pioneering project area particularly relevant for World Bank teams as IDA18 increases its focus on delivering services in Fragile, Conflict, and Violent (FCV) context. The ECRP demonstrates that when it works effectively across the institutions as well as with development partners, the World Bank Group (WBG) has the resources, technical expertise and ability to come up with innovative solutions, and to deliver them even under the most challenging conditions.
